"For her work Sophie Nys gets in narrow touch with herself. Her videos are equally impulsive as disarming observations and self-portraits. They’re brief instances, in which she rashly and playfully explores the possibilities of digital photography and video, pointing her lens towards herself on more than one occasion. The camera records and incites, it is both a companion and an ally, a toy and a playmate. On a regular basis she sets up Video Shows, for which she combines her pictures with compositions or everyday representations into a video presentation. Nys studied visual arts at Sint-Lukas in Gent and obtained her postgraduate degree from the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. She lives and works in Brussels." (argos festival 2004 catalogue)
