Tina Maria Nielsen
Tina Maria Nielsen works primarily with sculpture and installation, drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources ranging from everyday objects to ancient sculpture. Nielsen attempts to reproduce our sense of values and views through her work, reflecting an interest in objects that have some sort of lost attention. She investigates the assigned relationship between an object and its meaning, as well as the process and psychological aspects inherent in relation to experience and presence in space as a body, using various materials and casting methods.
