Work presentation
26.03.10 / Goethe-Institut, Georgien
Sonya Schönberger presented her new project, on which she worked during her residency at GeoAIR in Tbilisi. Besides, she talked about her artistic work in general, for which she uses images sourced from news media to reverse the process of an emerging press image through handicrafts. By stitching and with this changing the context of the image that she perceives, she attempts to let the audience look again and enhance awareness of the use of media in general in our daily life. Another major topic in her work is using and reflecting on the everyday of her surroundings in her video works.
As a result of the residency with the work What Makes the Life--The Inventory Project during October 2-10. 2010 Sonya Schoenberger participated in Artisterium ‘Imagine Future’, Tbilisi.
