Sonia Guggisberg – Bolhas

A cycle takes place in the work of Sonia Guggisberg. It is a cycle of water that, having sprung from a water table, flows on, spills, evaporates, and floods the exhibition venue. Most often, this water is created by light—in videos projected onto space. Here, both light and water are elements that guide the senses; they promote interaction, dialogue, and encounter. These are for the artist art materials that intervene in urban spaces, a quest to restore collective instances and activate social practices.
Guggisberg’s investigation is an exercise of perception that demonstrates just how desertification—this process of environmental regression—also affects social life. The artist’s interventions and video installations are micropolitical actions that seek the reactivation of such values as affection, belonging, bonding, and heritage.
