Sophie Nys

Sophie Nys is fascinated by indexation and classification mechanisms. Her work method appears to be based on the tried mechanisms of institutional criticism: showing and undermining the backgrounds of display and presentation forms. Nys goes a step farther, however, and utilises these mechanisms as artistic base material from which she develops new things. For FREESPACE LIMBURG, Nys used the complete address list of Z33 to produce a compact, unreadable address book by sticking the adhesive labels of all the addresses on top of each other. Nys has also compiled and presented a comparative archive of museological title signs.
