For almost a decade, Sophie Dupont has explored the basic conditions of man. With a background in visual art from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and dance from the London Contemporary Dance School, she puts her body in the center of organized and choreographed performances. Using her body as a medium, material, and tool, she works with an exchange between objects, body, and space, which often focus on the balance between concepts such as materiality/immateriality, physicality/spirituality, body/soul, and the abstract and concrete. Since Dupont did her first performance at a gallery in Copenhagen in 2010, she has worked uncompromisingly and determined to create a distinct and profound practice. WORKS 2010-2017 brings together Dupont’s artistic practice over a seven-year period, and bursting with images, the book invites the reader to explore the Danish performance artist’s intriguing universe, where she works with mental and physical endurance. The book is opened with an introduction by curator and owner of Roulette Russe Marie
