Sophia Borowska is an artist, writer, and cultural worker based in Montréal/Tiohtià:ke. Through sculpture and installations, research collaborations, and community-engaged projects, her work questions and challenges prevailing systems of power and control in urban environments, online spaces, and in the art world. The evocative powers of material and process are harnessed to create proposals for an embodied and haptic – rather than detached and visual – mode of experience. Her Jacquard-research practice seeks conceptual links between weaving, technology, and digital culture.
She holds a BFA, with great distinction, from Concordia University in Montréal, and a diploma in Textiles from Capilano University in BC, Canada. Borowska has exhibited work in Canadian artist-run centres, galleries, festivals, and DIY spaces, and has presented research and been published in Canada and the United States.
