Sophie Hoyle's artistic practice takes an intersectional approach to post-colonial, queer, feminist, critical psychiatry and disability issues. Their work looks at individual and collective anxieties, aiming to form alliances between marginalized groups. They relate personal experiences of being queer, non-binary and part of the Middle East and North Africa diaspora to wider forms of structural violence. From lived experience of disability and mental illness including PTSD, they explore the history of biomedical technologies and treatments that overlap with state and military control.
You can see Sophie’s video artwork at the exhibition in Gallery Equrna until 2nd of October and her AV performance with Swan Meat on Tuesday, 28th of September in Slovenska kinoteka.
