Om Bori

Without headscarf, 2016

Om has an NFT artwork for sale: HERE


Om Bori´s work combines still and moving images with different narratives genres, from memoir to documentary through to song and tale. It explores the intersection of visual and verbal exposition by means of videos, animations, drawings, objects, rhythms and algorithms. Point of departure are studies of a milieu, place or landscape and the human and nonhuman relations enfolding therein. Conceptually, it directs attention to how structural forces steer individual and collective lives, and how the individual and the collective attempt to resist such structural determination, whether through labour, hope, love, migration or madness.
