Sophie Warren and Jonathan Mosley

Sophie Warren and Jonathan Mosley are an artist/architect collaboration. Their work generates physical and imaginary architectural settings for occupation by participants and protagonists. The settings are constructed as installations, events or publications, using architectural elements and objects, live and recorded action, text and narrative. Each setting overlays the logics of distinctly different architectural, conceptual and game structures, bringing them into productive tension. 

They are currently working on forthcoming project Architecture of We and are artists in residence at the French Communist Party Headquarters in Paris. During 2016 they were Institute français laureates at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, and won awards from Arts Council England and British Council for development of Architecture of We.

Previous exhibitions and events include:Rogue Game (with Can Altay), a series of hybrid games forming solo exhibitions at Firstsite, Colchester (2015), Spike Island, Bristol (2012) (Rootstein Hopkins Award), Casco, Utrecht (2011) and The Showroom, London (2010); a mapping project, Doing Things Separately Together (with Axel Wieder) for Arnolfini, Bristol (2014); international event series Utopian talk-show line-up at SantralIstanbul, Istanbul (2014), Moderna Museet, Malmo (2014), Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2013); and group shows at Tin Sheds Gallery, Sydney, Massachusetts Museum of Modern Art, Smart Project Space, Amsterdam, Gasworks, London, The Armory Show and Frederieke Taylor, New York.
