Interview: Inside the Weird and Wonderful World of Sofia Lai

published on 14 June 2024

Meet artist and stylist Sofia Lai; the star of SHOWstudio's exhibition INTERDEPENDENCE.

If you feel a sense of grotesque when looking at Sofia Lai's work, you're certainly not alone. Uncanny yet equally (and wonderfully) familiar, Lai's sculptures are never the result of one mood or inspiration. Instead, they're a collage of references taken from moments as simple as 'watching a man walk down the street'.

The characters Lai creates may be as endearing as the artist herself, but there's more than meets the eyes when you're confronted with Lai's sculptural charm, as art and culture editor Christina Donoghue finds out in this interview.
