“I see Nexus as a space for encounter and process. The works of the members next to each other seem very different, but during the making process they share the inspiration for the physical; in the sense of space, body and environment. They are guided by what and who they encounter, by each other, by the relationships between people, things and nature. I am happy to be able to support Nexus in facilitating these encounters.”
