Nina’s praxis evolves the questions of living and non-living matter and what it means to be alive. In her sculptures and installations topics of bodily borders, concepts of human and non human agents, functionality and ecology comes into play. Working with different techniques, Nina combines traditional woodcarving with fluids, mechanical objects and 3D techniques.
