About

Sofia Borges Before Cave of Plato, 2014. Pigment print on cotton paper mounted to Sintra 18 1/2 x 27 1/2 inches Edition 5 of 5 + 2 AP Sofia Borges makes haunting, large-format photographs of archival objects and illustrations such as museum dioramas, taxidermy animals, Cold War-era ephemera, and archaic medical drawings. By cropping her subjects, Borges removes them from their original context and renders their content ambiguous, indecipherable, and symbolic. Gathered together, Borges’s diverse array of images represent a rich history of preservation, exhibition, and photographic approaches. Like the photographers who Borges considers influences—Mauro Restiffe, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Roni Horn, and Thomas Demand—her gauzy, saturated images of displayed objects blur the line between fact and fiction. The viewer is left unsure whether Borges’s photographs depict reality or an ancient, curated, cinematic representation of it. Borges most recently presented a solo exhibition at Float Gallery Athens and has an upcoming installation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Brazilian, b. 1984, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, based in Paris & Sao Paolo
