Nadine Baldow - Leitrim Sculpture Centre Ireland - Landmarks curated by Sean O'Reilly

Nadine Baldow's work in progress at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Ireland, 2020


Nadine Baldow (b. 1990, Dresden, Germany) is a visual artist based in Berlin whose work predominately addresses the complex relationship between "culture" and "nature" and their ongoing impact on each other. She is observing this relationship on many different levels and raises questions like: Are we still part of nature? What is "nature" after all? Could our planet, as we ourselves have shaped it, be what "true nature" is?


Baldow studied with professor Eberhard Bosslet, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden after completing a woodcarving apprenticeship in the Alps - she completed her studies as "Meisterschüler". She has been scholarship holder of the artist-in-residence-program in the Himalayas in India (KYTA Foundation), at Gozo Contemporary in Malta (the META Foundation), the National Park Sumava in Czech, Leitrim Sculpture Centre (ArtsCouncil Ireland), the nature conservation island Vilm in Germany (research grant of the German Federal Agency for Nature, BfN), Urban Nation - museum for urban contemporary art in Berlin (Stiftung Berliner Leben), Halle 14 - the Center for Contemporary Arts in Leipzig (Baumwollspinnerei / A room that...), Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen and in Seoul, South Korea in cooperation with the Hansung University.


She has also produced several public space interventions in Seoul (South Korea), Panjim (India), Dresden and Görlitz (Germany); and has exhibited her work in Switzerland, Ireland, Malta, Germany, Poland, Czech, the Netherlands, South Korea and India.
