Sophie Teh - Objects of Desire

The Smallest Gallery in Soho presents artist Sophie Teh with her work Objects of Desire. The exhibition consists of two suspended, rotating painted fabric sculptures.

Sophie Teh’s art plays with abstract and figurative themes, depicting familiar objects in unexpected ways. Her work references her South-East Asian Chinese background and explores how cultural conditioning and personal memories influence how we perceive and react to visual stimuli.

The Smallest Gallery in Soho is a short walk from Chinatown where restaurants customarily display food in windows, hung on hooks to advertise their freshness. Teh uses this as a starting point, employing the sausage, a traditional Chinese fast food, but itself a visually suggestive form.
