All that glitters is gold - and diamonds! At her work-in-progress showing, German artist and bangaloREsident@Pepper House, Sophie-Therese Trenka-Dalton presents excerpts of photo and video material collected in Kochi, Kozhikode and Malappuram during her residency. Besides her on-going interest in the unique traffic between Kerala and the Gulf States, Sophie explored other subjects like marine traffic, coir, palm fronds and malls.

Sophie-Therese Trenka-Dalton (*1979, Berlin) lives in Berlin. She studied visual art till 2007 at the University of the Arts, Berlin and Cooper Union, New York. After her studies she travelled for projects within Europe, to Los Angeles and to the United Arab Emirates, where she developed central aspects of her current artistic practice. In her research-based installations, Trenka-Dalton examines the processes of cultural shifting and appropriation that occur when centres of power implode and reshape. She retraces the continuous migration of cultural motifs along objects, buildings and stories.
