Thea Soti | October 2019-January 2020
Thea Soti, born and raised in a Hungarian family in Serbia, lives in Berlin. As a multidisciplinary artist, she works in the fields of experimental vocal music, electronic sound, installation, text-based and video art. She uses digitally manipulated sound, human voice, and poetry in various formats, thereby controlling and continuously processing her own voice. Her pieces usually go beyond the auditory experience and explore space and movement, thus creating dynamic spaces. She often reflects on current socio-political issues such as escapism, non-binary identities, beauty myths, and collective fear. She has worked and toured internationally from New York to Paris, Copenhagen, London, Budapest, Belgrade, Moscow, Marrakech, and Tokyo, and she has been artist-in-residence at Sonoscopia, Porto, JAZZAJ/BMC Budapest, the Balassi Institute, Brussels, and the Cité des Arts, Paris. She is currently working on a solo album in which she investigates the boundaries of gender, language, memory, and social affiliation by exploring virtual and post-human identities through the human voice in digital contexts.
Thea Soti was a resident at Tarabya Cultural Academy from October 2019 to January 2020.
