ABOUT

Sonja Cabalt is a multi disciplinair artist/designer, located inAmsterdam. 
In her work process she usually uses labor-intensive, old techniques. Her theme is mainly about zooming into growth and breakdown processes, from
micro to macro level.
By researching and experimenting with various material applications, there are many 'accidental' discoveries that she uses in her work. As a result, it is not easy to interpret, creating a certain tension and leaving it open to interpretation.

 

 

Studio

Her studio is located in Amsterdam in the eastern harbour district and is open to visit by appointment.
