Navid Nuur

(T)HERE is a typical Navid Nuur. As simple as it is spiritual, as powerful as it is playful.
The subject is the notion of place. This is revealed subtly in its existential dimension and simultaneously examined in its factual meaning.
[T] HERE also exists in a paper variant that the artist designed exclusively for Kunstbeeld. This work was published in the November 2008 issue. On one side of a page the artist placed a ‘T’, on the other the word ‘HERE’. If you hold the page up to the light, then the letters shimmer through and ‘ here ‘ and ‘ there ‘ blend visually together.
The light box on the wall (T) HERE is equipped with a motion sensor. When the viewer approaches the light jumps on and the T becomes visible. At the moment you thought you were there, suddenly everything changes.
