Text by Elisabetta Cuccaro, art critic, writer and curator based in Milan

Nijboer’s work builds upon the nature of passage and exchange, addressing that which lies between things and the energy passing through. Specifically, what becomes central is the relational aspect of perception – less the interplay of forms and more the movement that surrounds them. Her work shows what happens between and within elements, and the dialogue established has an openness – multiperspectivism- that invites free interpretations. Forms hint at the possible event behind them. In Nijboer’s practice, encounters – with things or people- are materials, and yet, materials also provide an occasion for these new encounters to happen. This twofold relation carries the type of ambiguity the artist is interested in: a switch, at once responsive and ductile, distinctive and undefined. 

Nijboer’s game of forms and materiality engenders an unspoken reflection on the perceptual aspects of representation. Surfaces appear as a theatre for conversations between mirrors, or better between reflections, in all of the term’s semantic ambiguity. Thoughts and illusions merge, giving rise to a recursive play that seems never-ending. Still, the materiality involved in the process anchors the experience of both creation and reception; it offers a stable frame, something vital for not losing touch with reality. Inherently, any possible notion or perspective can only be named from the nameless existence of things.
