Her series of works depicts the little house from the story of ‘The incidents of Saint Benedict', a painting by Lorenzo Monaco, with other elusive references to current ‘nests’, such as medicines, passages and enclosed spaces that keep us safe. This exhibition investigates our desire to find places to rest one more night.
Nina Silverberg is a London based artist born in Rome, Italy. Her latest work explores ideas of isolation, illness and the relationship of the inside/outside. Throughout her practice she pays particular attention to the edges of paint where order dissolves and inner and outer meet. These physical boundaries are manifested through the main subject of her work: architectural elements, such as windows, blinds, passageways and grids.
