The Sophie La Rosière Project

Process 34
Sophie La Rosière engages my collaborators in a journey of brainstorming, defining and redefining what art can be in our contemporary world.

My project, Sophie La Rosière, seems to have a pliable, open-ended structure. It engages my collaborators in a journey of brainstorming, defining and redefining what art can be in our contemporary world. Proposing notions of what might have been in former times and how we can try to tell stories of the past - without making it up, or, conversely, forcing us to acknowledge that any memory is synthetic storytelling. How can we distinguish reality and fiction for sure, and what “for sure” means? Meanwhile the project takes on more layers and offers its malleability as an ongoing entry point for research and creation.
