Sari Nordman
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: My name is Sari Nordman and I am a New York -based interdisciplinary artist working with dance, video and installation. I love to travel to the isolated parts of the world to reflect on nature, history and female experience, the recurring themes in my works. Originally from Finland I am also interested in the immigrant experience in my works. My art practices are interdisciplinary and contemporary in nature. I contemplate nature in specific locations and combined with my personal sense research juxtapose feminine mystique with environmental anxieties. In my practice I observe whether there is a possibility to summon sensations that are hidden in a collective memory. I create forms in time and space to rediscover the primitive alliance with nature. My works often promise something conventionally sensual; they can be tender, soft, invitational, while at the same time can be unconventionally dangerous for their subversiveness.
