The human brain isn’t the largest organ, but it is - in sync with all organs in the human body - the most essential. Although we don’t know for sure, we assume human consciousness is located in the brain. Input/Output (Brain Attack) refers to the precarious balance in our brain - regulating the body and adjusting to numerous stimuli to avoid short circuits and brain attacks. We need to constantly (re)negotiate the different energies to which the brain is exposed on a daily basis. And it is in the brain -gatekeeper of humanity - that the tension between technology and drugs is played out.
Victor Sonna is a visual artist born in Yaoundé, Cameroon. He graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven and Ak St. Joost and lives and works in the Netherlands. His artistic practice is formed and informed by his genealogy. The experience of being in-between cultures shines though his works, which is often born from tensions arising between cultures and styles, resulting in artworks that de-familiarize and test the boundaries.
He creates intricate assemblages of found, disparate materials, transforming them into unique and dynamic pieces with a new energy and meaning.
In recent years his work has been shown at Dak'Art Biennale, Dutch Design Week and Deutsches Museum, and is part of international private and public collections.
