Sofia Mattioli
multimedia artist / photographer

A half-South African, half-Italian multimedia artist, Sofia Mattioli experiments with various art forms from poetry to video, performance art to music. Now based in London, Mattioli studied art history in Rome, and has worked previously as a creative producer for photographers. One of her recent projects, Continuum, is a soundless piece that Mattioli presented to leading electronic musicians Jamie xx, Four Tet, Koreless and John Talabot, for which she asked them to write a two-minute composition inspired by what they saw. She also created the video for Jamie xx’s “Sleep Sound,” an exploration of silence and sound, in which she also appears, dancing alongside members of the Manchester Deaf Centre.
