Found objects are collected and processed by Danka Nisevic, creating a narrative between man, object and nature. The process is simultaneously enticing yet rejecting, as its ambiguity creates a trajectory which transforms the perception of these objects from unobserved ephemera to considered and contemplated remnants.
I found Paulin to be intriguing. I felt connected to your principles: tasteful, innovative, ethical, understated… the interdisciplinary nature of your store and of the exhibition itself was inspiring. I was interested in a space where art and commercial objects connect effortlessly.
The installation that I have produced is a collection of objects, remnants of the natural world and frivolity. It is a conversation between man, object and nature, reflecting the quandary of current global thought. Fragments, which would normally be thrown away, are now considered; natural objects, which would normally be ignored, are now elevated; frivolity, which would normally be standard, is now minimal. Environmental value is transforming. My installation is reflecting time lost searching...
Generally, I collect and process objects, which have been brutally removed from origin. Through intuition, I articulate remnants and create narratives, which are lingering between what once was and what now is… absence, yearning and bewildered loss create a trajectory which is simultaneously enticing and rejecting. Internal is externalised, external is internalised, transition is formed and everything is put at risk.
Labyrinth. Dreamscape. Wilderness.
I feel a strong connection with Paulin at every level: it is a store where I would like to exhibit art and jewellery, as I strongly agree with the values that your company is endorsing. Aesthetically, I find Paulin innovative and tasteful; conceptually, it is young and progressive. I think it is exactly what Edinburgh needs at the moment: most gallery spaces are commercial and Paulin is providing breathing space to be experimental.
