Mixed media collages on paper. New York, 1997-1998

Being in New York was a liberating experience for Nicolala. The lack of normality there enabled her to experience for the first time what's it's like to be small and normal. In love with the street life, where one can easily pass some 8000 people per day, she perceived this sea of people as something not entirely human: there was lightness, movement and transparency in their forms. It was as if she experience the city with x-ray vision, exposed to an endless variety of shifting energies. To her great delight, there was a constant dancing of spirits to be found in the swaying crowd. Nothing was solid about this experience. In this series of works, she tried to reflect the great power of continuous change.
