The work of Sonja Tanner is predominantly sculptural with clear references to functional objects where technique, form, texture and composition are omnipresent. Thematically, her work touches on modes of interpretation and understanding of craft, art and object. Although primarily, it is often questioning and exploring the changeability and transiency of our personal identities and the search for a constant self.
Pneumatic Nomadic - Sounding Stones
The collaborative work of Sounding Stones between Sonja and Ozgun Kilic narrate a transportive sound experience. The intentional tactility of the objects invites the viewer to embrace and experience the stones in a multisensory moment.
The material is a brick-clay sourced from Measham quarry in Northern England, and sand collected from Sonja’s home town, Clacton-on-sea.
