Originaire de la communauté communauté afro-caribéenne du Royaume-Uni, elle explore l'art en tant que pratique sociale et interroge le féminisme et la représentation du corps noir..
In 2016, Sonia was elected a Royal Academician, and in the same year received a Paul Hamlyn Artist Award. The British Council has announced that artist Sonia Boyce OBE RA will represent Great Britain at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, presenting a major solo exhibition of new work, running May to November 2021.
The main gallery at Eastside Projects is dominated by what appears to be a colourful rock formation. With all that in mind there seems to be a lot to explain but when I ask Boyce to do so she seemed determined to focus on the simplicity behind the performance.
