For the KVOST SchauFenster, Nona Inescu will present a new body of work entitled Offerings.
The works revolve around Tamata votive images – metal depictions of people and objects related to human life. In Modern Greek, the word “”tama” refers to an offering usually presented to a specific deity as gratitude for granted assistance. It is a kind of pledge fulfilled when a person or their relatives are in danger or unwell. The life-sized votive offerings in the window display prompt reflection and reassessment of the significance of ritual gestures in a constantly evolving world.
Nona Inescu (*1991) lives and works between Berlin and Bucharest.
