Nora Reade has been working on her projects at the Gastatelier since the beginning of November.
Nora Rekade’s works are generally created based on splinters of memory or thought fragments. She is inspired by everyday situations: a sentence seen somewhere, a song, an occurrence, thoughts that she is unable to let go. As if in a catalytic converter, seemingly trivial things become pictures with a further-reaching significance, metaphors for inner states. Her works seem to arise from intuition and call forth collective memories despite their reduction.
Her examination of such intensified moments of perception also includes a phase of maturing before an artistic work is created. Despite this personal approach, this great degree of subjectivity and individualism, her works go far beyond purely reflecting and depicting emotional states, and make reference in a collective sense to human existence.
