Nadine de Koenigswarter
is an artist for whom music is an important influence. She has long frequented the milieu of free jazz. From 2003 and 2008, she spent long periods of time in Senegal where she lived among a group of migrant musicians of Guinean origin. Among these economic migrants, who make traditional instruments, time took on different forms from in the West, the rhythms of the days and language and music entered into Nadine’s manner of drawing and led her to develop a technique for producing rhythmic perforations to fashion large, mesmerizing works on paper. Nadine’s work has been displayed throughout Europe and in the US.
