Sonia Leimer’s exhibition Autoterritorium weaves a number of her key sculptures and multimedia installations together to create a complex narrative about the conquest of spaces at the cross-over point between political utopia and personal appropriation. Outer space and the Arctic are both just as equally spaces of desire in her works as the streets we walk down every day. The materials and objets trouvés Leimer works with are often enriched by traces and clues indicating socio-cultural history, while simultaneously their possible uses and activation prompt us to think and define our own history. The exhibition focuses on the temporal and performative character of Sonia Leimer’s sculptures and itself becomes a territory that is activated and transformed by the visitors.
