Sophie Krier

Sophie Krier, relational artist and researcher, develops tools for collective narration and reflection. She is particularly interested in the oscillating movement between dream and reality, and form and non-form. Initially trained in textile design at the Design Academy Eindhoven, today she interweaves stories that connect beings and places at the intersection of art & ecology.

Between 2004 and 2009 she directed the undergraduate course designLAB (Rietveld Academie, NL). In 2008, Krier initiated Field Essays, an ongoing research on how to restitute creation processes, which takes among others the form of a series of books published by Onomatopee. On invitation of University College Roosevelt (NL), Krier recently developed Art & Design Practice: a new program in the spirit of Liberal Arts & Sciences, which she currently teaches each fall semester.

” In essence my – multi facetted – work is about mending our relationship to nature. I attempt to do this by focussing on processes and by interweaving histories, imaginaries and embodied experiences of beings and places.” Sophie Krier
