Nina Oltarzewska: Feminine Hesitations
The artist will be performing a series of spoken word texts and musical compositions especially for the festival.
Nina Oltarzewska is a French artist born in 1998 and based in Belfast. She works with sound, video and performance as well as sculpture and installation. She grew up in France and moved to Belfast in 2017 to start a Foundation year in Art and Design at the Belfast School of Art. She completed her BA(Hons) Fine Art at the Belfast School of Art in July 2021. She has since received five graduate awards from the following institutions: Bbeyond, Platform Arts, Pollen, the University of Atypical and PS2. She will be commencing a Fine Art Masters at the Chelsea School of Art and Design (UAL) in September 2022.
For Feminine Hesitations she will be performing a series of spoken word texts and sound work that she has been creating over the past couple of months. It will include her most recent compositions as well as some of the work she made during her last year in university. Her sound work offers an intimate insight into the processes she undergoes while trying to digest her emotions. Her work was made to offer an honest, undisguised insight into the mind of someone that has lengthily struggled with obsession. The works performed will speak to a deep sense of comfort and are likely to induce an almost trance like state.
