Anna Sophie de Vries

(1991, Den Haag, Netherlands)

Biography

The work of visual artist Anna Sophie de Vries consists of fiction films, drawings, music, and installations. Her work shows a world in which figures are looking for a more spirited reality than the reality they live in. Bored by world cities where decadence and materialism prevail, they look for a reality that pays more attention to immaterial matters. Characters travel through dimensions in which the infinite possibilities of the extensibility of consciousness are their main motive.

 

Anna Sophie’s contemporary art is inspired by nature and the cosmos, mythology, science, and technology.
