The good, the bad and the viscose
presented by Beursschouwburg
Nora Turato points a selfie-cam at today’s hectic internet culture. She exposes the fears that are at the root of our society’s shortening attention span. Her monumental installation in cold, black steel suggests that our ‘totally wired’ state of mind may be far more institutionalized than we think.
• Nora Turato was born in Croatia but has lived and worked in the Netherlands for the past ten years. She studied at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, a.o. In 2017-18 she was a resident artist at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. In addition to group exhibitions in Europe and the USA, she has also held celebrated solo exhibitions at Manifesta 12 in Italy, a.o.

Nora Turato infuses text with zeitgeist to create a spicy performative soup that some may find bitter but none could call bland. Expect foreboding metal structures and a verbal distillation of our partial-attention society, delivered with soap-operatic brio.
