About

Sophie Shaw

Sophie is a St Leonards based artist and narrative designer whose work centres on narrative. She works across exhibitions and experiences, co-creates participatory arts projects and is also developing her own individual artistic practice. While training as an art historian and curator she began making collages as an exercise in setting up and disrupting meaning. More recently, as she started to engage with relational dynamics coaching, she has been exploring aspects of narrative development which operate though spacial, embodied and emotional channels. A piece from her Tree Series was selected for exhibition in the Solaris Summer show in 2018, standing alongside work by Shuby and Geraldine Swayne.

 

Sophie’s narrative design work now falls under the banner of House of Cultural Curiosity (HoCC Ltd) which was formalised in 2019. Her community interest company (HoCC CIC) was formed in 2016, and through this she is developing her socially engaged artistic practice, working with specific communities, fellow artists, designers and scientists to explore the world with fresh eyes.
