Astrid Nobel presents the project Iland/Us along with a new series of works in which the sea is the main metaphor.
Nobels sculptures and installations focus on the in between. Indissoluble contradictions like dream and reality, before and after, here and there, as well as transitions between those contradictions, visualized by stairs, doors, bridges and horizons, are united in her works. Each work starts with a central theme. Similarities between different types of information are collected to get closer to the essence. Nobel looks for and selects materials that are closely connected to the subject. She draws, paints, constructs and makes use of photographs, found objects, text and natural materials.
