Born in Moscow, Sonya Bogdanova is a Chicago-based artist working with sculpture, painting, and performance. Her practice links materialism and esotericism to objectify representations of ruling classes. Centered on the desire for another way out, she explores how the path through horror enables action. Selected exhibitions include Western Pole (Chicago), Terrain Exhibitions (Chi), Ignition Projects (Chi), Co-Prosperity Sphere (Chi), and Flatland (Chi). She was an artist-in-residence at Holly & the Neighbors in 2021 and at Jiwar Foundation in Barcelona in 2015. Bogdanova holds an MFA in Studio Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and UIC.
