ABOUT NOEMI´S WORK

ARTIST STATEMENT:

In my current work I use common building materials and banal everyday objects. Basic objects of utility that have become invisible due to their self-evidence, I wrest away and show them in a new light. Materials of different origins brought into unorthodox combinations ask for new viewpoints and toy with the perception of the viewer and user.
If the used material does not correlate at first sight with its manifestation, this will have potential to irritate.
As a material fetishist I let collide the grown with the made. I load banal substances and material that feel distant to art with new meaning. I encourage to rethink our notions of materiality, their value and how we evaluate nature.
