Nadja Bournonville - A Conversion Act

A Conversion Act


Prompted by an interest in narrative, Berlin-based Swedish artist Nadja Bournonville has worked extensively on the phenomenon of hysteria. In her artist’s book the fragmentary traces of this highly elusive pathology provide the motivation for creating a discrete world of images consisting of photographs, drawings and prints depicted by the artist in often surrealistic image constructs that blend fact with fiction. Of her work method, the artist says: “My work focuses on this act of transformation, the spectacle, the staging, the attempt to document and size up the body through photography, the subliminal erotic aspect, and the all in all shaky framework as medical theory.”

Nadja Bournonville,*1983 in Vimmerby, Sweden. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
