DATE OF BIRTH
Oscillating between inner and external extremes inspires Sonja Lackner to create ambiguous and sensual art. The artistic process includes diving into deep emotions, involving her body and playing with different materials. During her travels to 45+ countries the artist is experiencing her topics in the context of diverse cultures and social habits. Exchanging with different mindsets is essential in her art.
Sonja Lackner expresses herself mainly through photography, drawing, video and sculpture.
From 2016 to 2018 she studied in Switzerland at F&F School for Arts and Design and completed her CAS Creationship® at Zurich University of the Arts. Her natural scientific background (master’s in chemistry, 2010) enables her to observe, combine ideas, optimize and trust in the serendipitous discoveries which are fundamental to her artistic process.
