From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Sophia Kalkau (born 1960) is a Danish artist, who works in a variety of media including writing, photography, sculpture and installation.

In the center of Kalkau’s art stands a critical, open dialogue that researches vocabularies of material and form around the female body through a photographic work. In a repetitive act of merging, binding and combining human figures and geometrical objects Kalkau formulates an artistic narrative of surface continuity and spatial organization.

A key characteristic of her oeuvre is a conceptual approach to contemporary sculpture that she serially explores through her own body. Kalkau’s interest in physical, cognitive and perceptive transitions materializes frequently in a scenographic performative gesture that she records through serial photographic prints. Kalkau’s photographic work defies an unambiguous reading and invites the viewer to various interpretations.

Kalkau’s sculptures, installations and photographies have been shown frequently in Denmark and abroad.
