Mushroomed by Object Lessons Space

21.07.2021

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.

This episode of Mushroomed deals with the unique study of psychogeography.

Our understanding of physical space is often mediated through maps. Mapmaking and cartography are often seen as precise sciences today, yet their methodologies have historically favoured particular knowledge systems over others. But what are the alternatives? This episode unravels the thought process behind the newest issue on Object Lessons Space.

About ZŪJAGO

Website | Instagram

ZŪJAGO(ズージャ語)translated as “jazz language” started off during the Taisho era (1912 -1926) Japan among jazz musicians as a slang. I felt this word was representative in spirit of what jazz in Japan was about. Taking elements of Western culture and turning it into their own thing, be it incorporating elements of traditional instrumentations or progressions.

With this in mind, I had set out to start a blog documenting Japanese jazz during the 1960s to 1980s and beyond. Granted there are easy ways of accessing this music through YouTube and BBE’s excellent J Jazz Masterclass series which has been feverishly reissuing long out of reach presses. I felt it would help to have a place where as many releases were documented and discussed about in some form. Hoping that in time to come more information about the artists who played the music will be discovered and covered here.
