Florencia Sosa Rey

Florencia Sosa Rey is a visual and performance artist based in the unceded territory of Tiohtià:ke/ Moonyiang, also known as Montreal. Using an approach rooted in a corporeal and somatic sensibility, she is interested in the hybrid socio-cultural history that her body carries in order to explore notions of memory, community and identity. She articulates pieces that address the embodied affect developed in relationships of intimacy, whether past, present or future. These being connected to people, experiences and certain inanimate objects. Her work is articulated through abstract drawing, performance, textiles, video and collaborations.

Since 2018, she has been involved in several collaborative processes as a performer, member of collectives or educator. Whether with artists, neophytes or family members, she is interested in the intersections and frictions that coexist in these dynamics, and which are synonymous with generosity, adaptability and a sought-after interdisciplinarity.

She holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University. Her personal and collaborative work has been presented in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, United States, Iceland and Argentina. She has received grants notably from the Canada Council for the Arts.
