Sophia Le Fraga @ Büro BDP
Two works by Sophia Le Fraga
July 7, 2011, From 18.00 to 20.00 pm
As a part of our exhibition series Exhibiting Literature, Büro BDP is proud
to present American writer Sophia Le Fraga. Le Fraga’s conceptual writings
often evolve around playful appropriations, erasures or cut-ups of already
existing texts. Her poems investigates the various possibilities of inserting
competing systems of signification within already given semantic structures,
hereby challenging, questioning and expanding our general use of language.
For her exhibition at Büro BDP, La Fraga will show two poem-installations,
which both deploy visual-aesthetic elements as crucial part-takers in the
poems’ formation of meaning. In these works color, image and space become
exactly as significant as the words themselves, hereby opening for the
possibility of remolding text into icon, and poem into painting.
Sophia Le Fraga (1990), raised in New York is finishing her B.A in Linguistics
and Poetry at New York University. Her work has appeared in The Last
Romantics, The Stolen Island Review and Lemon Hound. She currently
resides in Berlin.
