Nora Schultz

would you say this is the day?

June 27 – September 1, 2019

Everyday objects, language, recording systems, and cultural displacements play key roles in Nora Schultz’s art, as do the observation and critical activation of the exhibition space and the artist herself as the work’s producer. Recently, she has employed various cameras (GoPro, video drone, etc.) as automated “co-producers” whose contributions to the creative process she cannot fully control and which have their own internal dynamics and probe the artist/author’s changing position vis-à-vis its operation. In performative interactions, she often develops large installations that involve and take possession of the venue’s structure and sometimes project beyond its confines.


Nora Schultz was born in Frankfurt in 1975 and studied at the Städelschule, Frankfurt, and Bard College, New York. She currently lives in Boston, Mass.
