Alicia Kopf is an illustrator who writes and a writer who draws. Like a break in the process of writing a book, Alicia Kopf sees her exhibitions as an adventurous and enriching part of the work, a process in which what may have been just a soliloquy becomes a conversation.

The fact that she didn't have a studio and the difficulties she faced finding a job and a place to live led Kopf to turn to low-cost production – virtually notes on the margins of books. This approach gradually became a form of reflection through aphorisms and simple, straightforward drawings. Her illustrations and her images and texts are emblems of experiences that can easily be shared and reproduced.

SON[I]A talks to Alicia Kopf about her research processes, her latest projects and her use of metaphors such as the inability to enter her house, conquering a summit, and the exploration of polar regions.
