"Environmental artist, Land artist and fire sculpture."
Jordi NN (1985) was born in Valencia, Spain. He developed his artistic skills at various universities, such as UCM (Madrid), USAL (Salamanca) and UPV (Valencia). Jordi NN holds a bachelor’s degree from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, where he graduated in Fine Arts in 2011.
He began his travels more than two decades ago with the urge to explore and experiment with the world. In 2010 he participated in his first international exhibition in Amsterdam. In 2012 he became a one-way ticket nomad art wanderer travelling from country to country. During the past decade, he has participated in international projects in numerous countries in Europe, Asia and America.
Nowadays, he is known for his monumental-size, ephemeral art installations related to nature where the elements have a principal role. As an artist in the age of Anthropocene, his site-specific land art seeks the balance between humans and his relationship with nature and the world. The works are deeply rooted in the ecosystem that reflects on the human condition of their surrounding and expresses through the identities and local traditions.
Jordi NN art projects invite people to take a break and listen with their eyes. To walk around the artwork and see the sounds of silence. To have their minds touched by another reality. I am not trying to change anyone’s mind. I offer just an opportunity to consider a different point of view.
Everything changes so quickly these days that people often can not stop to contemplate life and be present. I invite people to reflect on where they are, where they came from and what direction they are heading. I provide aesthetic tools as a link between the past and present; while looking to the future. Intimacy occurs through an object that sometimes acts as a temple of the mind, sometimes as an offering ritual experience. A true encounter between the forces of nature and the world of ideas.
As an artist belonging to the Anthropocene era, I delve deeper and deeper into human understanding and their relationship to the world and nature. Every piece I develop has roots and connections with nature and environment, society, and my own experience which gives shape to my ideas.
I find it interesting that the paths to artistic conceptual maturity involve different levels. Science, history, myth and tradition are essential. The more I researched, the more I discovered the connection between belief and fact, symbol and language.
