Sonja Ratkay is currently living & working in Montréal.

Through mediums such as set design, styling, sculpture, ink drawings and textile works, Sonja Ratkay uses materiality as means for navigating the threshold between interior and exterior realms.  Liminal states and spaces are often the subject matter; being in autopilot through muscle memory, being partially asleep after a nap, walking down a corridor and having a déjà vu. Using motifs of fleshy text and abstracted bodies featuring organs and veins but also ghost-like extensions and shadows, attention is drawn to skins and boundaries of bodies in space and how materiality and immateriality press into one another through memory and perception.
