This week: Nona Inescu.
Lives in Bucharest, Romania
How do you describe your own art practice?
A hand with five fingers, each finger representing a medium I choose to work in: photography, sculpture, objects, installations and video works.
Which question or theme is central in your work?
The complex entanglements of human bodies with the environment.
What was your first experience with art?
My mother’s painting catalogues from the Hermitage Museum, the butterfly collection of the Natural History Museum in Bucharest and discovering surrealism.
What is your greatest source of inspiration?
What do you need in order to create your work?
Traveling and reading to enable the experience of new environments, landscapes and organisms. Sometimes, a long walk is enough.
What work or artist has most recently surprised you?
The new video series “Metamorphosis” curated by The Institute of Queer Ecology and published on dis.art.
