Sophie Hoyle

Sophie Hoyle (UK) is an artist and writer currently living and working in London. Their practice explores an intersectional approach to post-colonial, queer, feminist, anti-psychiatry and disability issues. At Rupert Sophie will continue work on Chronica, an ongoing project exploring embodied experiences of encounters with healthcare infrastructures in people with chronic illnesses, drawing on their own experience of Anxiety Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Their recent research has an emphasis on the politics of care and community, and social networks of support in relation to different kinds of precarity, especially under Austerity measures. They are interested in exploring the specificities of the Lithuanian context, and the wider Nordic model of social welfare and social support.
