Nina Vroemen makes work about ecology that is speculative and embodied. A focus on water and radiation influences their sculptures, video, dance, and installation.
Scientific and surreal, their practice works with the riddles of quantum, cosmic matter in reimaging relationships with the more than human in an exercise of staying with the trouble.
They seek projects that quicken the heart and engage in critical research, sensorial inquiry, and immersive fieldwork.
Collaborations with micro-organisms, cloud divination beyond the craft of forecasting, and experiments with queer, circumpolar ecology are but some of their recent projects.
Their current research delves into the fraught legacy of uranium mining and the atomic age. The ritual of risk management, the logics of capitalism, and the embodied scores of catastrophes are dissected and reconfigured in speculative works that point to larger system failures.
They are currently residing in Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal), on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka.
