Sofia Ponteâ€™s work merges photography, sculpture, video, performance and sound. Her installations establish inter-media relations that critically investigate art boundaries and artists participation in contemporary society. Sofia creates and participates in projects that examine current strategies that translate our social experience into knowledge and propose new ones. This might happen at a museum, school, library or within a group of enthusiasts in the public sphere.
Ponte is from Libson, Portugal. She received her BFA from the University of Oporto in Portugal and her Master of Science in Visual Studies from MIT in 2008. Sofia has exhibited internationally, including the Distrito Quinto Gallery, Barcelona, Spain; National Museum of Natural History, Lisbon, Portugal; Grand-Hall de La Villete, Paris, France; and Kasteliotissa Space, Nicosia, Cyprus.
