The Artist is Not Present explores conditional visibility and invisible
disability. A playful ambivalence runs through my work for the WAIWAV
intervention. I hope to live stream from my studio to the gallery.
About the artist
Sonia Boué has a performative and responsive visual arts practice.
Situated between her studio, and online spaces, Boué’s practice
encompasses many forms to articulate a concern with home and the
domestic as metaphors for exile and displacement. This touches both on the
historic and the contemporary and is often autobiographical.
At the intersection of the visual arts and activism, Boué is concerned with
objects, identity, and location. Rooted in a fascination with family archives,
material memory, and the themes of forced migration and inherited trauma,
her work has been exhibited internationally and is held in digital form at Tate
Britain, the BBC, and Bodleian Library in Oxford. She has performed in the
UK, Ireland, and Spain.
Sonia also specialises in designing neuro-inclusive models of practice. Her
most recent works explore the articulation of neurodivergent identity through
performative photography and collage.
