ABOUT THE CURRENT AUSTRIAN ISCP RESIDENT
Sonia Leimer lives and works in Vienna. She studied architecture at the Technical University of Vienna and the Academy of Fine Art Vienna. In her installations, she explores our perceptual foundations, which are formed on the basis of individual, historical, and media-related patterns of experience. As products of concrete historical contexts, rooms and objects undergo a transformation in which history and societal changes become palpable. From 2007 to 2012, Sonia Leimer hosted a radio show titled City and the Image. She taught at the Academy for Art and Photography together with Martin Guttmann from 2012–2016. Leimer exhibited her work internationally at Leopold Museum, Vienna; Galerie nächst St. Stephan, Vienna; Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen; Barbara Gross Galerie, Munich; Los Angeles Museum of Art; 5th Moscow Biennial; artothek, Cologne; Museion – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Bozen, Italy; MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles; Kunstverein Basis, Frankfurt; BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna; Salzburger Kunstverein; and Manifesta 7, Rovereto.
