Artentwine Sculpture Prize finalist Sonja Hindrum draws inspiration for her work from human connection.
Recently completing her honours in bio art, technology and communication, and connection, Hindrum said creativity has always played a role in her life. “I have always been a daydreamer,” she said. After completing textile studies at TAFE, Hindrum studied fashion design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Nesting, Hindrum’s sculpture for Artentwine, is in response to current events causing chaos all around the world.
“Nesting is a very passionate response to waste, homelessness, refugees and aspirations of trying to reach things that are perhaps unachievable, even if they should be achievable,” she said.

Hindrum coordinated the 2016 Peace Festival, drawing a great deal of inspiration for her sculpture from the information she consumed over the duration of the event.
A first-time entrant and finalist, Hindrum said she was excited to be critiqued by her peers. The Artentwine Biennial opened on October 1.
