NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

The exhibition of the two painters and one ceramicist focuses mainly on the human body. It is a collection of shapes that is the most expressive to other people. It can also be endlessly and without exhaustion used in artworks. 70–93% of communication is arguably based on body language but we are still quite illiterate about reading its meaning.

The authors add: “All exhibited works have been made in half a year for this project. Since we have allowed each other to quietly work on our own, we don’t want to also pressure the viewer with our interpretations. We won’t therefore explain our works nor offer a manual for the exhibition. The number of correct interpretations is equal to the number of stories constructed by the viewers.”
