Chris Soal
Lives & Works in Cape Town, South Africa
Chris Soal is an award-winning, emerging South African artist. Soal’s studio-based practice is sculptural in its output. He works with objects and materials in ways that show not only a conceptual engagement with the contexts and histories of the objects, but that also reinforce the body as a site for knowledge reception and production. Soal’s works seek to make a poetic statement through the simplest of means, engaging the viewer’s spatial awareness and perception, while challenging societal assumptions of value. Chris Soal will be presented by WHATIFTHEWORLD.
