NETTIE HORN is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Berlin-based artist Yudi Noor, featuring a new body of sculptural works in the form of an installation as well as a new series of collages.
Through the use of diverse sourced materials and objects,
Yudi Noor creates arrangements in a minimalist form of language exploiting
notions of symbolism issued from cultural, religious, social and political
fields. Noor’s work can be seen as a reaction to the themes and
tendencies of our society, exploring questions of spirituality, belief,
myths and their contexts within individual and collective notions of
Generated by a spontaneous and semi-autonomous approach to a daily ritual, Noor’s pieces are inhabited by a range of elements which have followed their own journey according to their histories and context. As Noor states “in a process of space and time, of proportion and direction, materials are brought together”. Determined by conditions of given origins and qualities, each object composing these sculptures and installations contributes to the way each work develops.
Noor’s collages reflect on memory and collective experience, presenting elements collected in places he has visited, such as embroidery, ornamental glass, ink-jet prints, and tape. These collages are manifest to the fragmentary nature of today’s daily situation, geometric shapes symbolizing elements of the fundamental human condition.
Yudi Noor was born in 1971 in Java,
Indonesia. He lives and works in Berlin.
