Georg Nordmark (SE)

Evoking movements, bites, claws and sniffs, Georg Nordmark’s conceptual sculptures take as their point of departure the objects used in the caretaking and handling of incarcerated animals. By bringing these elements into the art space, he seeks to investigate themes of behaviourism, discipline and enrichment.

Georg Nordmark (b. 1994, Gothenburg; SE) lives and works in Berlin. He holds a BFA and MFA from the Royal Institute of Art Stockholm. Recent exhibitions include shows at Carl Kostyál | Hospitalet, Stockholm, Galleri Mejan, Stockholm; Issues Gallery, Stockholm; Inter.pblc gallery, Copenhagen; Royal Institute of Art Stockholm.

"The construction of an art experience presents striking similarities with the presentation of any inanimate object that, through intentionality and expression, evokes a response. On a more formal level, all experience must be constructed within some kind of limiting structure, like a cage or an exhibition space. Within these structures, I am interested in how contrast makes visible the pre-conditions that distinguish humans from other species of animal."
