Museum Haus Konstruktiv
Museum Haus Konstruktiv dedicates a solo exhibition to Sonia Kacem (*1985 in Geneva, lives and works in Amsterdam), the 14th winner of the internationally renowned Zurich Art Prize 2021.
In her artwork, Sonia Kacem distinguishes herself with a heightened sensitivity towards materials that she extracts from the everyday consumer cycle. The artist uses them to develop large-scale installational and sculptural arrangements, in which she plays with our expectations regarding the nature and function of the materials. Kacem is particularly interested in exploring different varieties of abstraction, transitions undergone by surfaces and volumes, or questions of scale.
Her presentations open up a wide range of associations and hybrid cultural contexts. For her exhibition at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Kacem has continued her long-running engagement with color, pattern, decoration, ornamentation, calligraphy and the gestural.
