Instructor: Sofia Bicego

Sofia Bicego
Biography: Sofia Bicego is an interdisciplinary artist from Warren, Michigan and currently working in the Metro Detroit Area. Her focus is on investigating grief, trauma, and healing as they exist simultaneously within the body. She does this by using labor intensive and meditative methods of making, particularly through sculpture, site-specific installation, and drawing. Through these processes, Sofia creates codependency between object and author, balancing the taking from and caretaking of material.

Sofia has shown work at M Contemporary (Ferndale, MI), Huron Valley Council for the Arts (Highland, MI), Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery (Detroit, MI), Socra Tea Detroit (Detroit, MI), U245 Gallery (Detroit, MI), 333 Midland Annex Gallery (Detroit, MI), Reyes | Finn (Detroit, MI), and Field Temple (Detroit, MI). Sofia also exhibited site-specific installations at the Herman Kiefer Medical Complex (Detroit, MI), and Bulk Sanctuary (Detroit, MI). Sofia is a graduate from the College for Creative Studies, receiving a BFA in Art Practice and a minor in Ceramics.
