Nora Schultz’s (1975, Germany) work examines the making of pictorial representation. She is less interested in the finished work than in how images and objects come into being, and the physical traces that processes leave behind.
Working primarily with industrial materials, Schultz assembles these into fragile, precariously balanced abstract sculptures which are also used as analogue printing stations. Process remains central, and the moment of production plays a central role in her prints, printing machines, installations, and performances. Materials used are directly printed on, an act of translation from one state of matter to another through a process of visualisation. During Version Control, Nora Schultz will activate the objects for one day and create a new series of prints which will become a part of the installation.
