Sofia Hultén makes dimensional leaps using objects often literally found on the street. Grubby and familiar, her materials reveal hidden potentialities in alternative realities and parallel possibilities. In her sculpture, video and photo series, Hultén examines the material world as an extension of the lived-in mind. Hultén considers not only the current state of objects but also their past and future. They usually appear as fragments of a larger frame of activity, similar to a single aspect of an overarching storyline. The different sequences of events remind us that objects are not static and fixed, but located in a time-space continuum. Some of her sculptures can be seen as humorous speculations on the geometrical shifts within objects changing from the third to the fourth dimension. For “Altered Fates” (2013), contents of a street skip in Berlin are each slightly modified by the artist. A hole is cut in a piece of plastic, a knot tied in a rope, a rubbish bag turned inside out. The objects are then replaced in the skip.
