Sofia Arreguin

My Pet Project

November 8th 2015

Sofia Arreguin is a 23 year old artist who lives and works in East Hollywood.  She graduated from CalArts in 2012 and has been assisting Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch for the past year.

In “My Pet Project” Sofia uses sculpture and video to explore the deconstructed animal body.  Animals are no longer whole once we get our hands on them.  We take them apart and attach them to ourselves.  They become fetish objects that fill a void of the other.
