Sophie Thun (b. 1985) lives and works in Vienna, Austria. Thun’s practice encompasses photography and collage, using her own body as a site for meaning and exploring the dialectical interrelationships between the scene of production and the work’s presentation, between the setting of the artist’s labour and the physical presence of the body. The places where Thun exhibits her work often serve as points of departure for photographs that show how her body imprints its presence on them. Recent solo and two person exhibitions include those at Secession, Vienna (2020); c/o Berlin (2019); Camera Austria, Graz (2019); Galerie 52, Universität der Künste Folkwang, Essen (2019); Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna (2019 and 2018); Kunstraum, Munich (2018); and Mz* Baltazar’s Lab, Vienna (2017). Selected group shows include: Borderlinking, High Art, Paris (2020); DAGUERRE’S SOUP Christian Kosmas Mayer x FOTOGRAFIS, Kunstforum Wien (2019); Für die Vögel, Landesklinikum Hollabrunn (2019); Body in Progress, Austrian Cultural Forum, Berlin (2019); Choreography of the Frame, Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (2018); and Strudelobjekte, New Jörg, Vienna (2017). In the context of the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019, Thun participated in the project images of/off images, an artistic documentation of the process of development of the Austrian Pavilion with Ipek Hamzao─člu and Laura Nitsch. Since 2015, Thun has been part of the collective <dienstag abend>. Thun was awarded the work grant from DZ Bank for 2019-20.
