Enigma of Nobel, Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea, curated by Valentina Gensini, Firenze.
March 2016

The artist fixed Bertha von Sutna to a chair with clay. This performance says as much about Nobel’s life choice, to dedicate himself to his career, at the expense of his relationships with people, as it does about his desire for Bertha von Sutna, for her body, which he would have liked to immobilise.
