CONSULTING

EKPYROTIC STRING VI · NEW YORK CITY

Nathalie Pozzi


 

Ekpyrotic String is a fibreglass sculpture installed at NYU´s medical centre by Japanese artist Mariko Mori.It was modeled as a 3D form in Mariko Mori's New York studio, and then routed into fire-resistant polystyrene by Model Porex in northern Spain on a large scale six-axis router; it was surfaced, structured and cut into sections. In Factum Arte warehouses it was repeatedly sanded, filled and re-sanded until a perfect coherent form was achieved. It was then taken to a spray booth/oven where Airbus parts are normally painted and covered with layer after layer of a special holographic paint made by Lechler in Como, Italy.

HIT BACK · NEW YORK CITY

Nathalie Pozzi


Steady Pulse is a project that transformed Recess into a club that plays host to a diverse range of happenings and interventions, including performances, movement workshops, conversations, and dance parties.

At the center of the club will be an architectural and sculptural dance floor, which will shift appearance and function as it acts as a platform for the varied events.

[Excerpt from Recess]

 

Hit Back is a sculptural and performance-based installation developed by artist Brendan Fernandes during Steady Pulse, a summer session residency at the NYC nonprofit Recess.

Nakworks's consulting focused on the development of a modular layout, to serve as dance floor.

The dance floor is not used exclusively horizontally, but also as wall or frame or stage, to accommodate dance performances, public talks, parties, as well as a stage-like view from the showing-window.

The choice of materials and colors, limited to grey felt, white coated metal and skin-toned plywood, heightens the focus on the dancing bodies.

As a result, the performances play with the blurry line between the dancers and the dance floor.

INTERVALS AND FORMS OF STONES OF STARS · DENMARK

Nathalie Pozzi


"Through a series of cameraless photographic registrations, Nanna Debois Buhl maps the biotope’s flora, fauna, and soil and draws connections between the characteristics of the site and its photographic representation.

Using historical photographic techniques to connect what is depicted in the images and how they are made, her photographs are inspired by the cameraless photographic works of William Henry Fox Talbot (1840s) and August Strindberg (1890s); images created in the moment of contact between the object and the photosensitive surface."

 

Site consulting with artist Nanna Debois Buhl on "intervals and forms of stones of stars", a large-scale installation on the facade of the Arken Museum of Modern Art, Denmark.

Consulting focused on the placement of 3 wall photographs, considering general distribution, location and scale.

THE PAGE · TORONTO

Nathalie Pozzi


“The Page” is an immense public sculpture that aims to reflect on the history of the West Don Lands, while at the same time interpreting and making connections to the current transitional moment of development that the area is undergoing. Formed of white bent metal plates, the undulating form evokes a sense of lightness, where its movement becomes reminiscent of a scroll of paper.  A Morse code pattern is cut into the surface that is lyrically spread thoroughout the piece, making a collage of words that respond to the site. The Morse text runs from top to bottom, starting and stopping throughout the piece. This creates a directional motion that concludes with a footnote. Subtly placed on another part of the sculpture is the corresponding footnote symbol leading to a poem written by the artist that responds to the site and its changing state of progression. This tiny text is meant to be a surprise, a happy find, where the viewer can have a moment of intimate reflection concerning the work’s meaning in relation to the site and the current moment that they are sharing with this object. “The Page” aims to become a marker for the past, a participant in transforming the present, and a witness to a vibrant future.

PAPER PIECES · NYC

Nathalie Pozzi


In PaperPieces, Wolcott uses dance theater, spectacle and papered structures to explore a world of awkward moments exposed, tender collisions, and mundane survival. The protagonist is a naïve in snow globe memories, a haute couture avatar doing battle and a woman balancing on the most delicate edge of love.

Wolcott sources the sensory and psychological connections we have with the material objects we touch, see, and engage with daily as a catalyst for composition and performance.

Together with her collaborator, sound designer Omar Zubair, they create a piece that operates like a series of cinematographic dissolves and quick cuts where density of narrative detail is delivered in complex blasts.

The visual, sonic and kinesthetic information ultimately compounds and subdivides, giving the audience a sense of being an intimate co-conspirator in the destruction and reformation of this paper world.

THE PLANETS · QUEENS / NYC

Nathalie Pozzi


The Planets is a sculptural installation about our solar system, a source of wonder for both children and adults.

In the form of a planetary model, the sculpture hangs from the ceiling of a school lobby. The 8 planets and the sun are fabricated in colorful powder-coated metal.

The model is accompanied by planetary mnemonics, phrases used to remember the name and sequence of the planets.

The text for the mnemonics (inspired by dadaist poems) will be written by the students, and the phrases, made of powder-coated metal letters, will be mounted on the high wall in the lobby area.

REBIRTH · ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS · LONDON

Nathalie Pozzi


The exhibition was a complex, multi-project exhibition, installed in the Royal Academy’s new space for art and architecture in Burlington Garden. As a landmark historical building, the installation process had to conform to rigorous preservation guidelines.

Many of the artworks involve the subtle use of high-end technologies, such as Tom Na H-iu, which relays an information feed from the Super-Kamiokande Neutrino Observatory in Tokyo to manipulate a series of LED lights.

Managing the installation involved coordinating the efforts of a team of hardware and software engineers, technicians and assembly specialists, as well as architects and designers.

LEGEND FOR BLINKING CITIES · BEIJING

Nathalie Pozzi


Nakworks and game designer Eric Zimmerman were asked to contribute a fictional map “legend” for Blinking Cities, a project of Instant Hutong.

Instant Hutong’s projects explore the Hutong districts in old downtown Beijing, threatened by development. Founded by Beijing-based Italian architects Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani, Instant Hutong is a series of installations and events on the borders of art, social investigation and urban research. Their projects investigate the unique Hutong urban tissue, made of lanes and courtyard houses, as well as the community of people living within.

ONENESS · BRAZIL

Nathalie Pozzi


Oneness was a major survey of the work of artist Mariko Mori, installed in Brasília, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo in 2011.

The artworks in the exhibition often combined complex, multi-layered technologies. The central artwork Wave UFO made use of a brainwave sensing system linked to real-time software projections, all housed within a large sculptural installation that completely enclosed visitors.

Managing the exhibition meant coordinating the efforts of a large team, including art handlers, carpenters, electricians, software engineers, architects and several other specialists.

Oneness was the world’s most-visited contemporary art exhibition in 2011.

100 BEGINNINGS · NYC

Nathalie Pozzi


Wolcott is working with Vanessa Walters, choreographer and performer for the music/art phenomenon Fischerspooner to create this multi-faceted new work. The two gather a cast of characters to use dance, spectacle and space to explore a world of awkward moments exposed, tender collisions, attempted fame, and survival in high heels.

Nicole marries her fascination with cinematography to her penchant for creating episodic pieces. The walls act as a shutter and lens for the audience’s eye. This structural component in motion reveals her attraction to fast cutting, intermittent work with sharp cuts between scenes, plays in perspective, sliding back and forth between scenes as they evolve, in and out of the imagination. The piece reflects her daily experience of life in the city: a steady hum of countless quick cuts panning in and out of focus.

[100 Beginnings is] Lots of fun in high heels.  An extreme performance getting an extreme reaction…..Two moving walls create rooms, corners, barriers, tunnels, hiding places and mazes, to make the whole thing feel very much like a dreamscape where things shift constantly and imperceptibly…Certainly, each of the performers give us something to watch and something to applaud.

INSTALLATION 1:2001 · FIRENZE

Nathalie Pozzi


Installation 1:2001 is a circular room of religious, ideological and philosophical books from all over the world.

The books are used as bricks to construct a temporary building, with their covers facing outward. A narrow entrance leads to the interior, where the white pages contrast with the colorful covers visible from the outside.

“10.000 religious, political and philosophical books that would have otherwise been destroyed were collected from universities and libraries around the world.

They were brought to Piazza della Republica in Florence and used as material for the work. Seen from the outside, the different languages, titles and colours form a rich collage. Inside all is just harmonious white paper.

The process and the work itself received a lot of attention. The installation was destroyed in 30 hours by the citizens of the Renaissance town. Although the books were written in languages they could not read, such as Polish or Lithuanian, all the books  were taken home and the installation continues in their bookshelves.”

BIRD CAGE · YOKOHAMA TRIENNALE · JAPAN

Nathalie Pozzi


Bird Cage is a 5 meter high cocoon-like cone, constructed from hemp rope and steel, installed in the harbor of Yokohama, during the Yokohama Triennale of Art.

Each day of the exhibition, a “bird” made of balsa wood was flown out the top of the structure, rising up to 10 kilometers on a meteorological balloon. When the balloon burst, the bird glided down slowly, its exact landing point dependent upon prevailing winds. Each bird carried five seeds (rice, wheat, soy, oat and bean), along with a message asking whoever found the bird to plant the seeds.

Responsibilities included on-site coordination and production management, as well as as the documentation of the process.

Subject: I have received the seeds

Hello… My son is 50 years old. My son is working at the Honmoku Pier in Yokohama. He has received the message on 07/Sep/2001 pm 4:00 @ Honnmoku Pier A5 container-yard. He has received the seeds.

Unfortunately I don’t have a land to seed the seeds in my home.
