Sofia’s work is distinguished by her deep research in the deconstruction of natural and corporeal subjects, the purpose of which is to generate new surreal creatures. Her artistic practice is characterised by a creative process that embraces aesthetic heterogeneity, resulting in often strikingly different visual outcomes. Particularly evident in Sofia’s works is an ongoing exploration of the similarities between elements of nature, technological devices, food products, and objects that symbolise consumer’s culture. Through her manipulations, Sofia challenges visual and conceptual conventions, prompting the viewer to reflect on the interactions between human beings and their environment, and the cultural and social implications that result. 

 

In Ravioly Fans, an obvious reference to the on-demand erotic site, Sofia deals with the conventions associated with intimacy and eroticism through a surprisingly provocative creation. With artistry, she shapes sexual objects using pasta, transforming everyday elements such as ravioli, linguine and orecchiette into symbols of desire and pleasure. This unusual and daring collection, which includes ravioli condoms and orecchiette cuffs, plays with the idea of fusing the ordinary with the sensual, challenging expectations of our relationship with food and sexuality.

 

Ros-ass-ry, on the other hand, is an intriguing exploration of the connections between religion and sensuality. Sofia creates thongs using rosaries, combining two iconic and often opposing elements: religious symbolism and sensual lingerie. This unusual fusion provokes deep reflection on the way society represents and regulates sexuality, while questioning the concepts of sin and pleasure through bold and provocative aesthetics.

 

Literally ‘ngul a mamt is a visual celebration of Napoli’s Scudetto victory. Sofia captures the energy and enthusiasm of this historic moment, conveying the fervour and passion of soccer fans, and channelling the collective joy of soccer as a cultural phenomenon.
