Exhibitions / MOSTYN | Nina Beier [institutional leadership]

26.10.2013 to 05.01.2014

MOSTYN I Wales is delighted to present a solo exhibition by Danish born artist Nina Beier. This exhibition is the first for Beier in a UK public institution, and one of the most comprehensive exhibitions dedicated to her work to date, bringing together both existing works and new commissions.

Beier’s practice is perhaps best characterised by its conceptual orientation and its rigorous investigation of the object and exhibition of art itself as well as its attention to form and context. Aspects of art production and ideas of display, value and ownership, and the manner in which these perceived and received, are amplified and subverted in many of her diverse works. The performance of objects and materials – how they change through time or alter according to context and presentation – and their potential to appear contradictory are crucial and recurring themes in Beier’s work.

The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Council Committee for International Visual Arts.
