Noor Nuyten

°1986, Groningen (NL) - lives and works in Amsterdam (NL)

Noor Nuyten playfully and humorously provide new ways to engage in a critical but humorous relationship with rationally structured systems such as time, language and units of measurement.

Her artistic practice is rooted in conceptual art, but unmistakably contemporary. She has a highly innovative mindset, with which she surprises her audience time and again. She has a progressive vision of artistry, believing that art can develop sustainable alternatives to the current linear economy and bring attention to the urgency of climate. Intriguingly, she is able to bridge the gap between the art world and the world beyond with her work, making her work accessible to a wide audience.

In addition to an activist attitude co-creation is an integral part of Nuyten’s art practice, she seizes collaborations to deepen her artistic possibilities and experiment with different crafts, techniques and materials. Over the past decade, she has collaborated with various specialists and skilled herself in several crafts; from clockmaker and shoemaker to glassblower. Nuyten sees her artworks not as individual, but as a collective activity that requires cooperation between people and a wide range of activities.
