Nina Kurtela was born in Zagreb, Croatia and is currently based in Berlin. Her work ranges across media and between disciplines including visual and performing arts. With its conceptual and multidisciplinary approach, her practice gives a chance for any means of production to be realized. The work is often multidisciplinary, site-specific, engages particular communities, questions monetary values and explores notions of exchange through which different social relations are established. While examining identity and intimacy she questions how can different actions of the body in particular social, cultural and urbanistic sphere determinate the human behavior, influence experience and affect us. She often uses situations from every day life and places them into another contexts in order to render them visible and expand their meaning. She is interested in dedication, duration and time. She explore idea of immaterial labor in relation to everyday life, both engaging particular communities or using her own body through which she questions exclusiveness of art in attempt to erase the distinction between the makers and observers.
