*Images ONLY representing each artist, final NEW TAROT artwork to be released.
Painter and illustrator based in Trieste, Italy. After years of working as a graphic designer, Nassyrova now makes her living full time from her art. Her work has been published in major magazines and also in several books.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Nauman created various claustrophobic and enclosed spaces that were designed to disorientate his audiences. In this installation, a long corridor is shrouded in darkness, whilst two rooms on either side are illuminated by bulbs that are timed to flash at different rates. The particular length and width of the corridor, together with the intensity of the intermittent lights, function to direct our movements as we traverse the space. No longer simply passive spectators, Nauman transforms us into active participants who are nevertheless controlled and manipulated by his reconstruction of the gallery’s layout.
