Sophie Kitching
(b. 1990,
Isle of Wight, UK)

Sophie Kitching graduated from École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, and School of Visual Arts, New York. Kitching works with installations, paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. With a poetic exploration of environment and natural phenomena, Kitching offers curious reflections on the concepts of space and reality, through an alluring and inviting materiality. She creates atmospheres of both utopic otherworldliness and a grounded familiarity for the viewer to enter. 


Kitching has recently exhibited with solo shows at The Finch Project, London (2023); 3A Gallery, New York (2023); Alice Folker Gallery, Copenhagen (2022); Galerie Isabelle Gounod, Paris (2022); PS122 Gallery, New York (2022); Park Hyatt, New York (2021) and Galerie Vaste Horizon, Arles (2019). Her latest duo and group exhibitions include shows at C1760, New York (2023); Nosbaum Reding, Bruxelles (2023); FRAC Grand Large – Hauts de France, Dunkirk (2023); KENZO Marais, Paris (2019) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2017). 

In 2016, Sophie Kitching was nominated for the ‘Bourse Révélations Emerige’ in Paris. In 2017, she inaugurated the artist residency at Maison de Chateaubriand in Châtenay-Malabry, and Lienart published her first monographic catalogue Nuits Américaines. The same year, she created sets for Kader Belarbi’s Ballet Don Quichotte at Théâtre du Capitole, Toulouse. In 2018-2022, she was awarded a studio residency as part of Painting Space 122 in New York. During Frieze NY 2022, Kitching exhibited at House of Ruinart’s Maison 1729 and created a limited-edition of Second Skin Magnums and in 2023, during Paris Fashion Week - Haute Couture, she created two limited-edition Serpenti Forever Handbags in collaboration with BVLGARI.
