Solo Exhibition

»A worm crossed the street«

Nadja Bournonville

In her new artistic project, Nadja Bournonville deals in many ways with the life, biodiversity, legacy, representation and extinction of animals. The artist photographed objects and specimens in the Natural History Museum Vienna. The result is a visual aesthetic cosmos, deeply rooted in being between beauty and deformation. At the same time, the photographs refer to the heterotopia inherent in the museum. The scientific knowledge inscribed in the exhibits disappears behind an abstract moment. Bournonville shows these photographs in an exhibition installation alongside videos and real and virtual objects. In 2020, the book of the same name was published, which won the Swedish Photobook Award.
