April – June, 2023
Sophie Dupont is a visual artist working in diverse media and within a span of aesthetic practices such as performance, photography, sculpture, and painting. In her existentialistic and poetic artistic research into human beings, her own body is her primary tool. Accordingly, Dupont’s performative ritualistic and tightly choreographed works are deeply rooted in her educational background within dance and visual art. Her multisensory embodied connectedness to the world challenges gender, ethnicity, eroticism, and spirituality. Dupont’s performative artistic research always has an Ecocentric starting point and they become holistic explorations of the connections between subjects and world.
Dupont received an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and has studied Contemporary Dance at London Contemporary Dance School (The Place). Her work is represented at The National Gallery, Aalborg Art Museum and several private collections. Dupont lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
