    Sophie Utikal’s textile piece explores the sensations of belonging and displacement in the encounter with an unknown future. The interruption of everyday life emerges in her work as an atmosphere of constant and conflict-ridden negotiation with passivity. The arrangement of the characters evokes the forced physical distancing and the disruption of the tactile currently being imposed on interpersonal relations, addressing the effects that the pandemic has had on our emotions, feelings, and behaviors.

    Sophie Utikal, born in Tallahassee (Florida, USA) in 1987, lives and works in Berlin and Vienna
