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.

Filmed in Point Pelee National Park, 2017

The rain had stopped
Grey blue all around
Waves continue crashing at each other,
eternally.
Birds seem to enjoy the strong currents.
The sun is setting.

I started walking
Footpaths
The long grass brushing up against the legs,
Moist
Darkness surrounds.
The footpath, no longer visible
Senses get heightened.
The feet are moving like a motor.

Finally, fear departs.
An owl,
like a ghost sweeps across the field.
Nothing any more visible
Alone,
except the lighthouse.

Feeling vitality and a connection to nature
Looking back at the disconnection, searching, disagreement
Only a drop in the vast seas - comes the recognition and catharsis
