What does a sculpture that pulses, oozes, gushes, and melts look like?
Needless to say, what a work is made of influences the sort of impression we have of it. A material-driven process is often a labyrinthian maze — a rabbit hole to burrow down into.
Nabilah Nordin’s works can be described as a smorgasbord for the senses. Her sculptures are luscious landscapes, gloopy messes, and spacious caverns all at once. We wrap up the first season of Mushroomed with a conversation with Nabilah Nordin. We speak to Nabilah about her approach to experimentation and failure, and the place of language within her practice.
