Sophia Borowska (b. 1993) is Montréal-based artist and researcher working in fibres, sculpture, and installation. Her work questions the potential for control in architectural and virtual spaces through textiles and the manipulation of threads. The evocative powers of material and process are harnessed to create spaces that propose an embodied and haptic – rather than detached and visual – mode of experience. She holds a BFA, with great distinction, from Concordia University in Montréal, and a diploma in Textiles from Capilano University in North Vancouver, Canada. She is a member of the Textiles and Materiality Research Cluster under Milieux Institute at Concordia. Borowska has exhibited work in Canadian artist-run centres and DIY spaces, and has presented research and been published in Canada and the United States.
