An installation in three distinct yet interrelated parts, respectively in the form of photograph, words and sound. Each of these works comprises of two sides - recto verso/verso recto, and invites a repositioning by the viewer.
The image is synchronic, a single moment in two photographs, which require walking around to be assimilated - one, then the other, independently. Disconcertingly disparate scenes are visible on each side of the fulcrum of the sleeping figure.
A line of writing printed on both sides of a hand-held card. To be read this is necessarily turned over by reader, turned again and again for the text is unresolved, never reaching narrative conclusion.
A single sound in the room, however consisting of two distinct tracks, only one can be registered at the time - one then/or the other.
Sophie Loss’ work reflects her interest and excitement in ‘what if’ situations, occurrences in which one thing meets another, a superimposition that may lead to incongruity.
