In Nora Schöpfer’s work, experimental debate using the media of painting, installation, photography and video often focuses on questioning perception, temporal and spatial relationships, and concepts of reality and materiality. Perceptual fragments from memory and the imagination are reassembled to echo the way our realities are formed. Two- and three-dimensional works emerge, as well as moving images, which subsequently join together into expanded spatial concepts. Here, extended temporal and spatial depictions and an imagined dissolution of matter are means with which to suggest an intensified atmosphere of immediate presence in the act of seeing. Here, overlaid images of situations in exhibitions or in public space as well as images of groups and structures in nature and their mutual similarities continue a process inviting us to participate in a kind of visual streaming.
