Sonya Kobozeva

Sonya Kobozeva

Sonya Kobozeva was born in 1986 in Moscow.
In 2014, she graduated from the Russian Institute of Theater Arts, Department of Scenography. Since then, he has worked as a production designer and costume designer in the theater. Here are some her theatrical works — “Don Juan” at the National Theater of Mannheim, “Joan of Arc” at the Chelyabinsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater named after Glinka, the Laboratory of Modern Opera “Cooperation” on the stage of MAMT named after Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko in Moscow.

Her characters live by themselves, immersed into the world of their own thoughts. They do not interact much even with each other, preferring to look at the phone or throw themselves into the «work». They are separated even more when the artist places them on single canvases, simultaneously limiting with the artificial frames, but at the same time giving private freedom and the opportunity to feel as natural as possible. The colour scheme is also extremely concise and only boosts the impression of isolation.
In her project «The First Love №2» Sonya Kobozeva talks about the first love, or rather its image, when pink translucent illusions collide with everyday solid reality. This project is perceived by Sonya Kobozeva as a program segment of her life, which she realizes through the prism of the past tense, colored by the irony of tender memories. The artist experiences this time once again, but already operating not the real people, but with symbolic allegories, constructing a theater with a lot of props, but without actors.
Sonya Kobozeva lives and works in Moscow.
