Nina Beier probes the depths of the material world, exposing the underlying narratives contained in the lives of the objects we produce, acquire, use, and discard. Harnessing found objects and commodities as well as associated social habits and behaviors, she deftly manipulates and recontextualizes them within her sculptures and performances to examine global power dynamics, value, and representation. This richly illustrated volume provides an in-depth understanding of the Danish artist’s multifaceted career through the sampling of existing texts written by key collaborators over the past decade, and newly commissioned essays which further explore the central concerns and motivations behind Beier’s practice, exhibition history, and selection of materials. With extensive survey exhibitions culminating in 2024 at CAPC musée d'art contemporain, Bordeaux, KIASMA Museum, Helsinki, and El Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, now is an evident time to publish the first elaborate monograph to date.

NINA BEIER (*1975, Aarhus, Denmark) graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 2004. Working with a range of objects travelling between different geopolitical realities, Beier’s installations seek to confront, negotiate, and undermine the volatile tropes these materials bear. Her internationally acknowledged work has been presented in a range of environments from museums to the public realm. She lives and works in Copenhagen.
