Tina Maria Nielsen rarely models her works, but finds, constructs, and most importantly, casts from existing matter. Throughout her career, she has transformed everyday objects into everything from paraffin, wax, concrete, plaster, rubber, polyester, aluminium to black or polished bronze. This translation into new materials fundamentally causes the selected objects to move out of their everyday logic and understanding and into a more perceptible exchange between what we see and what we imagine.
In the exhibition "Echoes", Tina Maria Nielsens primary focus is on nature and the archives of art history. Artefacts from the 1st century are paralleled to newly collected bird nests in a kind of temporal equation. The present and the past are recorded and resurrected in tangible sculptures, that work both individually and in interaction with each other.
