Sonia Leimer has risen to international renown in recent years with her large-scale installations. In her exhibition Space Junk she continues to pursue her longstanding interest in architecture, the working world, and globalization. Forming the springboard for her practice is her ongoing research into objects and materials that are of cultural, social, historical, and also personal significance. Her book highlights special moments in the artist’s work process, revealing her schematic approach. Photos are mixed in a dense sequence with notes, found footage, video stills, and visual documentation of the exhibition. This web of associations makes it possible to imagine the issues surrounding the meaning of the materials in the context of its conceptual treatment. Essays by Letizia Ragaglia and Silvia Eiblmayr give discursive depth to the visual approach.SONIA LEIMER (*1977) lives in Vienna. She studied architecture at the Technical University of Vienna and at the Academy of Fine Art Vienna and was a founding member of the architecture office and gallery Nullmaschine (2001–02). She has exhibited her work internationally in New York, Zurich, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Vienna, Aachen, Los Angeles, Salzburg, Bolzano, and at the 14th Triennale für Kleinplastik, the Fellbach Manifesta 7, Rovereto, and the 5th and 6th Moscow Biennials.
