Sophie Clements is a visual artist based in London. Taking inspiration from ideas in science and experimental music, Clements manipulates time to create highly constructed objects that grow from their surroundings, producing collages that rely on chance interactions and discourse between the concrete ‘real’ and the constructed ‘unreal’. Her recent work explores the use of video as a form of sculpture, using devices including sculptural installation and video projection to deconstruct and re-assemble time and material to question the notion of physical reality in relation to time and memory.
Much of Clements’ work is made in relation to sound and music – the expression of the two languages of sound and visual as a singular voice being a key driving force. Sophie has worked in collaboration with a number of composers or sound artists, as well as various visual artists.
