“For me this word describes all things which are unbelievable, maybe unimaginable and sometimes don’t even to define with words. It’s the fine line between understanding and the limit of human perception. It’s the adjective for all secrets in this world, which we can only imagine a little part of and which are the rise of my fascination. All in all I need this word to express my reverence for all the things we don’t fully understand.”
I am completely fascinated by the words and works of Nina. Inconceivable is the exact feeling that a viewer can perceive by experiencing her creations. She charms our attention by shooting triggering images of reality, which are veiled by something we cannot really understand at the first glimpse.
Each of her artwork needs the right time and attention to be understood. Yes, we should take our time to analyse what we’re looking at. Especially because Nina’s creations dialogue with perception and visibility. In most of the cases, in our daily life we walk and we just see what we want to see, if we are aware of it! Sometimes we do not even know where we are going or we just walk with a low glaze, isolated in ourselves. This is what Nina’s photo Der Unterschied zwischen Anwesenheit und Sichtbarkeit  made me reflect upon. What we watch, and what we see.
With these photos she highlights how we can only enjoy a very small part of reality. On the other hand, if we cannot see it this doesn’t mean it does not exist. It’s up to us to see through and go beyond the first layer. For instance, if we look at the printed photographs with red glasses or with red light on them, then we can’t see the turquoise parts in the photos anymore. For the viewer they are invisible, but they are still present!
This is a very strong and triggering concept that we should keep in mind and explore in our daily life. Nina Kuka is a young artist who graduated last year from the Academy of fine arts and design in Maastricht, triggered by the unknown!
