Sophie Knezic is a writer, scholar and visual artist who works between practice and theory, with a particular focus on the nexus between art theory, post-Conceptual practices and Continental philosophy. Her research specialisms include the metaphysics of transparency, immaterialism, spectrality, temporality and memory, with current research into sound art, humour in contemporary art, and experimental film and video. Her PhD titled Transparency, Translucence and the Crystallisation of Time was completed in 2015.
Sophie’s critical writing has been commissioned from museums including Buxton Contemporary and Monash University Museum of Art, and has been published in Broadsheet Journal, Evental Aesthetics: An Independent Journal of Philosophy, Invisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture, Memo Review, Art + Australia, Art Monthly Australasia and other publications. She is a regular contributor to Frieze and Australian Book Review.
