Sonja Ratkay is currently living & working in Montreal

Through use of mediums such as set design, still-life styling, sculpture, ink drawings and textile works, Sonja Ratkay uses materiality as means for navigating the threshold of interior and exterior realms. By evoking liminal states of being, she creates choreographed movements between body and mind, a pathway for feelings, thoughts and associations to travel. Using motifs of 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.
