Material Talk – Nadia Guerroui

October 31, 2019 – 6pm

Nadia Guerroui, artist and participant of the Styria-Artist-in-Residence 2019 (St.AiR), in conversation about her artistic practise and current projects.

Nadia Guerroui (*1988) creates poetic-abstract works in which she explores everyday phenomena and concepts from our complex, contemporary world. An intense reflection process and experiments with unconventional materials are at the base of her creation process. The dialogue that her work brings about with the observer and the space, and the well-considered choice of materials, textures and shapes link Guerroui’s work to minimalism. Her works are able to transcend the personal, the anecdotal and as a result layers of meaning and imagination are given free play. Nadia Guerroui obtained a master in textile design from La Cambre, Brussels. In 2014 she was selected for Coming People, S.M.A.K, Ghent and her work was exhibited in Cab Art Centre, Brussels. Her recent solo exhibitions include: Palimpset (Art Institute Shibukawa Gallery, Shibukawa, Japan 2018); Blink (DAC, Dolceaqua, Italy 2017) and Impostor Syndrom (Snap Projects Gallery, Lyon, France, 2016).
