Sophie Takách is an emerging artist currently undertaking postgraduate studies at Monash Art, Design and Architecture (MADA) at Monash University in Melbourne. Sophie has an object based sculptural practice which incorporates performative action and ephemeral installation. These take the form of sculptural works that reference the body and the interface between the organic and the human-made, primarily using the techniques of casting and fabrication. Drawing on a deep interest in science and the underlying physical processes that make up the material world, she exploits the interactions between force and matter to reveal otherwise intangible forms and actions. Her most recent exhibition was from one body to another at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Casula NSW with Fayen d’Evie. She has exhibited locally and internationally, previous exhibitions include Human Commonalities with Fayen d’Evie, V.A.C.
