Nadi­ne Bal­dow *1990, Dres­den, Germany

Nadi­ne Bal­dow is a visu­al artist with the focus on site-spe­ci­fic installations.

After her appren­ti­ce­ship as a wood car­ver in the Alps, Nadi­ne Bal­dow moved to Dres­den to stu­dy Visu­al Arts. She stu­di­ed with pro­fes­sor Eber­hard Boss­let at the Aca­de­my of Fine Arts in Dres­den from 2013 to 2018 and is now Meis­ter­schü­ler of Eber­hard Bosslet.

Pas­sio­na­te to explo­re her own per­so­nal rela­ti­ons­hip to natu­re, she took part in several adven­tur­ous, natu­re-near artist-in-resi­den­ci­es such as in the Hima­la­yas in India, the natio­nal park Šumava in Czech and the natu­re con­ser­va­ti­on island Vilm in Germany.

Based on her work and rese­arch in tho­se remo­te are­as, her impres­si­on of “natu­re” as a com­ple­te­ly by man­kind occu­p­ied pla­net streng­t­he­ned. Most of her works deal with our per­spec­ti­ve of natu­re and the impact we have on this planet.

Due to the working sti­pend of the Federal Envi­ron­men­tal Agen­cy (UBA), she had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expe­ri­ence the unin­ha­bi­ted natu­re con­ser­va­ti­on island, Vilm, and to work with the natu­re pro­tec­tion aca­de­my for six weeks. Her site-spe­ci­fic instal­la­ti­ons made of plastics has been awar­ded with the poly­ure­tha­ne inno­va­ti­on award 2017. Last year, the instal­la­ti­on “Mar­ked Sheep” has been nomi­na­ted for the Bloo­om Award at the Art­Fair Düsseldorf and she has been the hol­der of the natio­nal scho­l­ar­s­hip in Germany.
