Discipline: Visual Art – installation
Region: Brooklyn, NY
MacDowell fellowships: 2017

Sonya Blesofsky is an installation artist whose site-specific work deals with architectural fragility – not only the troubling weakness of physical structures, but also the tenuous nature of the memory and history of a particular place. In residence, she used the history of Peterborough's built environment as source material for two site-specific projects related to memorializing and questioning history. In a departure from her typical in-situ installation methods, she created drawings and stand-alone sculptures from historic wood found on site.
