Artist In Residence #1


Sophia Ioannou Gjerding is an artist currently living in Aarhus, Denmark. Her artistic practice involves installation, film, animation, sculpture, sound and text. Through these mediums, she strives to understand contemporary cultural image production and how recent imaging technology creates new visual perspectives and spatial dimensions. At COMA, she will be working with sound, video and 3D-print. She will be using photogrammetry--a method that makes it possible to obtain three-dimensional information from photographs. Working with this method, she will use representations of lions, mainly pictures of sculptures found on the internet (for instance a lion statue previously found in Palmyra called Lion of Al-lāt), and try to recreate three dimensional sculptures from these representations. The investigation will be presented through two different artworks which will be shown at the end of the residence period.
