about this work

This new silk scarf combines two distict text styles that Nora Turato has been mixing in her prints. The backgroun of the scarf is made up by the text "stop calling me daddy, my kids are getting confused" in a style that reminds of the warnings on cigarette packets. This is combined with the text "we felt it" in a new font that Turato developed, based on the notes she makes by hand in the margins of her scripts during the preparation of performances



Please note you are pre-ordering this scarf; all sales ship out 15 December 2019. 

about Nora Turato

Nora Turato reflects on the hectic (internet) culture of today. In her work, she explores language as a signifier that is constantly changing and tries, through a non-stop process of reinterpretation, to organise and organise our culture and world so that we can relate to it.

Using various but closely interwoven media, Turato builds a practice in which she plays with the speed of language and the ready-made vocabulary of the Internet. Her source material is text from a multitude of sources; a collection of appropriated words, sentences, fragments and quotes from film, advertising, literature, chat conversations, theatre, and social media.

Fragments of these texts find their way onto posters, prints, and artist books, but also form the basis for her meticulously scripted performances.

Nora Turato exhibited her work internationally at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein; Beursschouwburg, Brussels; Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen; Luma Foundation, Zurich; Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; Bielefelder Kunstverein; CIAP, Hasselt; Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit; Manifesta 12, Palermo; MUMOK, Vienna. In the near future Tirato will have solo exhibitions at Serralves Museum, Porto; Philara Collection, Düsseldorf; and Centre Pompidou, Paris.
