Sari Nordman’s Tower installed at The Immigrant Artist Biennial, NYC

Sari Nordman is one the artists contributing to the group exhibition “Mother Tongue”, part of The Immigrant Artist Biennial, held online from October 16 – December 18 2020.

Tower is an interdisciplinary installation work utilizing sculpture, video projection, archiving and community participation. The project reflects on climate change and the biblical story of The Tower of Babel – the story of greed and value of cultural differences. The 4m tall sculpture is constructed of wire mesh cubes and each cube frames plastic waste. The design was made in collaboration with architect Robert Mencarini, and was first built at Catwalk Art Residency, NY in September 2019.

Sari Nordman is a NYC-based video artist and dancer-choreographer. Her artistic work considers the feminine, nature and history. She has presented her choreography and films in the US, her native Finland, and elsewhere. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from NYU/Tisch School of the Arts.
