Dora Budor “Again” at Nottingham Contemporary

By Last Updated: February 15, 2024Views: 107

Croatian-born artist Dora Budor’s first institutional exhibition within the UK contains a sequence of newly commissioned works involved with methods of the constructed setting and the assorted types of psychosocial management induced by it. Inherent to that is the event of “pastoral energy” as an individualising and totalising pressure that continues to form the social physique. Within the UK, this infers the historic improvement of enclosures of widespread agricultural land; to the event of Nineteenth-century utilitarian structure and a welfare state designed to enhance the ethical character of the social physique; to present-day methods of city renewal and beautification, privatisation of public land, and the proliferation of hostile structure. Continuing from the formal language of sculpture, states of intoxication, disobedience and transience are met with states of security, moralisation, well-being and safety, and re-encoded into works that each index and subvert the kinds through which they’re discovered.
