Apaixonarte had the pleasure of presenting “Interioridades”, an individual exhibition by Nina Fraser.
Apaixonarte challenged the English artist Nina Fraser, who lives and works in Portugal, to create a collage exhibition for the celebration of our 5th anniversary. The selected collages were seen during the exhibition, which was inaugurated with the presence of the artist on November 30th and continued until January 13th, 2018.
Nina Fraser makes collages using magazines and photographs, often in response to other images as a starting point, deconstructing and reconstructing urban and rural landscapes. For this exhibition Inter “Interioridades”, our gaze is shifted from the outward to the inward – the personal domain, the interior of the house.
For this exhibition, we requested the public to participate by sending us a photo of an interior room within their home. These photographs were selected and manipulated directly by Nina, each forming a new unique collage, traversing the line between public and private, the usual boundaries within domestic home life are dissolved, allowing a connection to form through a shared familiarity of our beautiful, uncompromising domestic existence.
