About Sonja Cabalt

I am a multi disciplinair artist/designer, located in Amsterdam. In my work process I usually use labor-intensive, old techniques. My 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 I use in my work. As a result, it is not easy to interpret, creating a certain tension and leaving it open to interpretation.
