THIS MACHINE BUILDS NATIONS
Jasmina Cibic has developed a site-specific installation for BALTIC that showcases the three films of her latest NADA trilogy presented for the first time in the UK. Bringing together film, sculpture, performance and installation into multi-layered projects, the core themes of her practice explore how art, architecture and political rhetoric are deployed and instrumentalised in the name of the nation.
Serena Korda is currently the Norma Lipman & BALTIC Fellow in Ceramic Sculpture at Newcastle University, a two-year residency that culminates in this exhibition. Korda works across performance, sound and sculpture reconsidering aspects of communion and tradition in our lives.
