Sophie Utikal (*1987 Tallahassee, Florida). Just in time she quit her job, took the money, and moved to Vienna to study art. Now she studies with Ashley Hans Scheirl at the Academy of Fine Arts and likes to work collectively on issues related to her own experiences. Departing from her own body, she tries to translate her experiences into words and images introducing a new possible order to them. It is about the reconstruction of the self. What seemed lost? What is possible in the future?
