Sonia Leber is known for her distinctive video artworks made with collaborator David Chesworth using video, sound, architecture and public participation. Developed through expansive research, Leber and Chesworth’s works are speculative and archaeological, responding to architectural social and technological settings. Their highly detailed videoworks emerge from the real, but exist significantly in the realm of the imaginary.
Exhibitions include 56th Biennale of Venice (2015); 19th Biennale of Sydney (2014); ‘The Last Reader’ annex M Athens (2018); ‘The State We Are In’ Galeria Labirynt Lublin Poland (2018); ‘And Tomorrow And’ Index Stockholm (2018); ‘The Score’ Ian Potter Museum of Art Melbourne (2017); ‘Melbourne Now’ NGV (2013-14); and ‘Stealing the Senses’ Govett-Brewster Gallery New Zealand (2011).
‘Architecture Makes Us’ a major solo exhibition of Sonia Leber and David Chesworth’s videoworks is showing at Griffith University Art Museum in Brisbane during March-April 2019.
