Journey to Byzantium

During the last decade, Nina Surel has advanced a very refined and thoughtful proposal. Using her body as unerring map and territory, her erudite work leads us into dark labyrinths populated by our own fears and prejudices. Addressing core issues associated with childhood, femininity, history and social stereotypes, Surel’s body of work stands as a witty, looming yet conveying portrayal of modern woman.

Mirror of Venus

Glottman Alive-The Vignette Project, involves the participation of visual artists in the production of works of art that serve as the basis for “vignettes”.

The first artist invited was Nina Surel, an Argentinian born-Miami-based visual artist who will unveil the commissioned piece Mirror of Venus (2016), a large-scale tapestry produced in the workshop of Moooi Carpets in Germany.

Known for her mixed media portrait-landscapes that offer provocative and deep portrayals of women, Surel experiments with a medium that is new to her. In the process, she introduces a new landscape – the Florida Everglades – and new creatures –the swamp’s reptiles and insects.

According to Surel, Mirror of Venus explores the dialogue between the inner and outer self, the surfacing and layering of the human psyche. From this perspective, it is relevant to look at her work in the context of surfacing materials and how they can affect spaces in an autobiographical, theatrical and artistic manner – creating a truly unique experience for the person who chooses to bring them into their own personal space.

Immolation for the sake of beauty
