Artist biography

Sofia Tolis is an artist as well as a poet, educated at Konstfack 1993-1999, as well as the Nordic Writers’ School, Biskops Arnö 1990-1991 and 2002-2003. Her work often revolves around her own experiences, where the personal unguarded is balanced against the private. In previous works she has, among other things, explored existential issues such as the language’s relation to human aging, sexuality and religious fundamentalism. Whether she works with text-based art, installations or sculptures, she strives to reach the inner essence of the subjects in her works. “The Artist’s Mecca” is Tolis’ fourth exhibition at S.P.G.
