Sophie Innmann (*1986 in Münchberg) holds a degree in Fine Arts from the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe, where she studied with Prof. Leni Hoffmann, Prof. Axel Heil, Seb Koberstädt and Martin Pfeifle. In 2013, she was awarded Meisterschülerin by Prof. Leni Hoffmann. From 2016 until 2017, she held residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and was funded by Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart. During September and October 2017 she was artist-in-residence in Hangar, Barcelona.
The practice of Sophie Innmann is marked by large-scale, site-specific installations that incorporate her fascinations with movement in relation to time and architectural settings, visible marks of physical intervention, and the formations of potential within these frames.
Her work is based on the observation of spaces and human actions which create our everyday experience, and which she transfers as underlying concepts for participatory experimental settings with an open-ended outcome.
Her work uses different media such as installation, objects, painting, drawing, video, photography and human activity. The use of materials deriving from leisure and sports industry are constants in the development of her work. Her proposals aim to outline the possibilities of how to create an image based on human existence.
She has worked and exhibited in contexts such as: Regis Center for Art (Minneapolis), Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Parkhaus im Malkastenpark (Düsseldorf), Kunsthalle Bremerhaven and Kunsthalle Basel. In 2018 she was part of a cooperation between Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Simultanhalle Cologne.
Apart from her individual production she has been actively involved in various associations and groups such as plan b (Freiburg), Kunstverein Letschebach (Karlsruhe) and ANTHROPOZAENTA 2013 (Helmbrechts).
