NOUR FOG

Nour Fog's practice takes its departure in clay, on the formable nature of the material, its close relationship to the human body and its immediate sensuality. They works with sculpture, sound and performance in a conceptual crossroad between the body, gender and the sea. The transformation from the soft compliant clay to the ceramicized, burnt material with a high degree of tactility.
References to fossils is a recurring focal point for Fog, who considers the sculptural forms as bodies or containers for life. Considering form they draw on classic basic forms from vases and jars, as in the works there are also clear references to ancient primitive forms and fertility figures. They aim at working within a so-called non-binary sphere, where a dissolution of the unambiguously gendered takes place, and where the conventional readings are challenged. Fog offers the viewer  an experience of something familiar, hence foreign.  The works often have amorphous forms and are worked up to a size that inevitably causes the viewer to relate to their own physical presence. Nour Fog is interested in the solidarity of hydrofeminism across irrigated bodies and a non- hierarchical worldview. The fact that all life is created by water and is connected via water, combined with the mythologies of the sea and the connected symbols, is a recurring theme and layer of meaning in his practice. Nour Fog ( b. 1981 ) graduated from the Jutland Art Academy in 2016.
