In her artistic practice, Nadia Belerique draws upon the scenes and situations of domestic life: she makes use of chandeliers, keys and blinds, or, indeed, the blissful view from a window, as in this work produced recently for the Kunstverein. One might understand the domestic setting as a site of retreat and intimacy, or alternatively a place in which vision is obscured, in which a wide spectrum of emotions and relationships might be possible. The home might be an allegory for the contingent ‘architecture’ of body and mind. By linking these physical and mental worlds, Belerique opens up spaces for the myths of everyday life, for secrets that can be felt rather than heard.
This edition is a reworking of a photograph from the Kunstverein exhibition. Quite literally, it opens a window into an alternative time-and-space reality which continues to both unsettle and enrich our perceptions of the everyday.
