Multimedia artist Nina Beier probes the depths of the material world, exposing the underlying narratives contained in the lives of the objects we produce, acquire, use, and discard. Through studied juxtapositions, Beier reveals objects as personifications of our value systems, as well as emotional representations of competing histories of vast global power structures. Beyond reflecting human wants and desires, Beier coaxes objects to bare their anthropomorphic souls, confronting viewers with externalizations of their personal and collective identities. In Beier’s works, materiality has a language of its own and she encourages the visiting public to listen as objects speak, telling tales about things they might not be ready to hear.
