van Sonsbeeck, Sarah (NL)

She is known as an architect of anti-sound and master of disconnection. Sarah van Sonsbeeck portrays silence, and makes us aware of its lack.* In her work Sarah van Sonsbeeck (Amsterdam, 1976) concentrates on defining and appropriating space. In 2008 she wrote a letter to her neighbours asking them to pay 80 % of her rent since their noise pollution took up 80 % of her living space. Since then she has occupied herself with the meaning of sound, or the absence thereof. (* Quote: Nicola Bozzi, MetropolisM #1 2012)
