Drop City, Düsseldorf
at Hotel Ufer
Sophie Macpherson writes and makes films, live events, objects and drawings. Her practice has always sat within a sculptural context but with performative connotations. Sometimes she works collaboratively with artists and performers, and often she draws on personal records to investigate subtle communications informing our notions of identity.
For Drop City, Düsseldorf at Hotel Ufer she shows a collection of tailored garments made from towels sold in a market near her studio. She lives and works in Berlin and Glasgow.
