The photographs featured in this exhibition are inspired by Nervo's fascination with dance. The movement, the shapes, and forms it creates, the feeling of freedom and letting go.
In this series, Nervo explores the feeling of movement, inviting the audience to join her in the fascination to watch the intriguing movement of dancers. She investigates the art of dance and movement and its personal connection to her: "I aim to capture the vitality and aliveness that dance depicts through the blurriness of these photos. The dancers are hurtling through space, moving quickly and freely, making the decision about when to click the shutter an instinctive act. If you have to anticipate the moment, you can miss it."
