ArtSpeak | Sonja Porcaro

Join us on Monday 27 February lunchtime to hear an ArtSpeak from local artist Sonja Porcaro.
Sonja Porcaro is a mid-career artist working predominantly in sculpture, installation and sound. Porcaro uses everyday objects and humble materials to create restrained and poetic works, often investigating notions of memory (drawing on her Italian migrant heritage), uncertainty and the fluidity of language, representation and meaning. Sonja is currently showing works at FELTspace ARI in solo exhibition All the years/ lost and found (as if snow, melting) and in group exhibition Unravelling Encounters at Light Square Gallery.

Where: Lecture Room, Level 2, Adelaide Central School of Art

When: 12.30pm – 1.30pm
