"Sophie Whettnall lives and works in Brussels. She studied visual arts at the Sint-Lukas institute and painting at the Academie, both in Brussels. Her work includes photography, video and multimedia installations and it revolves around two central axes: self-portraits and landscapes. She is particularly interested in the relations between the intimate and the unknown and she often explores the confrontations between various cultures or surroundings. She was a resident at the Hangar in Barcelona (2001-2002) and she has exhibited, among others, at The Video Art Foundation (Barcelona), the ICA (London) and Video Underground Zero (Toronto)."
