Sophie Hirsch Builds Out
As the daughter of an Austrian engineer, sculptor Sophie Hirsch has an instinct for transforming industrial materials. At last summer’s inaugural NEWD art fair in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Hirsch and her whimsical creations—which are made of less-than-natural substances including silicone, PVC, and plexiglass—stole the show, putting the Vienna transplant on the New York radar. Here, get a behind-the-scenes look as Hirsch prepares for her first solo exhibition in the US.
Hirsch’s “Autokorrekt” opens March 27th at Signal gallery, 260 Johnson Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, ssiiggnnaall.com.
