Pliability and Immediacy


FROM KOLAJ 25

Nina Fraser: Artist Portfolio
Lisbon, Portugal

Nina Fraser writes, “My work arises from an attempt to understand the contradictions in our exterior world through the physical act of arrangement and material investigation. Attracted to inexpensive and throwaway materials; paper, magazines, household DIY materials and plastic bags, I seek the value they hold through their intrinsic lack of value, as well as their pliability and immediacy, and their insistent grounding in a time-place, through association of text, image or material properties.” A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj 25.
