Biography / Nadine Baldow

The artist Nadine Baldow comes from Dresden, Germany. She is part of the class of 2019 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Scholarship Program.

In her series “OCCUPIED OBJECTS” she examines the relationship between humans and nature. She places a critical focus on human’s intervention in nature, which is thus compressed and curtailed in its form and ability. On the other hand, it also represents the power of nature, which recaptures habitats. In her work, she considers humans and nature as opponents in her quest for living space.

Her sculptures seem to be alien organisms, but they are also objects from the everyday environment of humans. The sculptures consist of refrigerators, washing machines and cooking facilities, which are decomposed, overgrown and deformed like a mushroom. She uses poison green, deep black, bright pink or pastel blue sprayed forms made of polyurethane, a rather unnatural material.
