Sofie Thorsen - Born in 1971 in Denmark, Sofie Thorsen lives and works in Vienna. A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, she has shown her work internationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions, for example at Kunsthaus Graz and Kunsthaus Baselland in 2012 and at Bank Austria Kunstforum in 2013. She lives and works in Vienna. She held a teaching position at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna from 2005 to 2009.  In her installations, films and works on paper, Sofie Thorsen deals with questions of space and architecture in urban space as well as the exhibition space itself. Where the starting point of her work is mostly research based or documentary, the images and materials that surface during research are reworked and developed into abstract objects and images that constitute the final work.

Sofie Thorsen (born 1971, Denmark) was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest the Royal Academy, Copenhagen, and the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. She lives and works in Vienna, Austria, where she teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts. She has exhibited internationally in group shows and solo exhibitions, the latest at Kunsthaus Graz and Kunsthaus Baselland in 2012 and at Bank Austria Kunstforum in 2013.
