About Sofia Caesar
Sofia Caesar is an artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil living in Brussels.
Caesar's work is rooted in dance practices and somatic procedures that evoke physical states between activity and passivity, work and rest, movement and pause. Her universe of work activates the body: it often proposes stillness as an active physical state or elaborates on the bodily effects of technology, productivity, and work.
In the past years Caesar has exhibited at institutions such as the Transmediale (DE) Moscow Biennial (RUS), M HKA (BE), SFMOMA (USA), A Tale of a Tub (NL), Tomie Ohtake Institute (BR), Centro Hélio Oiticica (BR), ISELP (BE), Brugge Triennial (BE), WIELS (BE), Beursschouwburg (BE), amongst other organisations in Belgium and the world. Caesar is currently a PhD candidate at Luca School of Arts, Brussels within the Intermedia Research Unit, cluster Photography Expanded.
