Nora Aurrekoetxea
[/ultimate_headiNora Aurrekoetxea’s Besoa, Klit, Lepokoa and Trentza come together in Romantic Bullets Position Effectively to stop without concluding an intuitive drift of gestures and twists connected through the presence and constituent materiality of the works. Nora’s four braided pieces produce stable forms for the intimacy of gestures that arise from the habit of the provisional and perishable. Creating a system of relationships that also includes the continuous exchanges between the natural and the artificial —both in their form and material qualities— Besoa, Klit, Lepokoa and Trentza return to the initial impulse of this intuitive curatorial process of gestures and indirect organic links that suggests a circular structure for other possible directions.
Biography of Nora Aurrekoetxea

Graduated in Fine Arts at the University of the Basque Country in 2013. She developed her practice together with artist Laura Ruiz for 5 years (2012-2017), both working as a tandem. Her work was based on a biographical need to respond to a historical moment related to the Basque political context and its collective imaginary. During that period of time she founded and directed, together with two other artists OKELA (2014-2017), an artist run space located in Bilbao dedicated to contemporary art that proposes a formal and discursive dialogue between artists of different generations from the Basque Country. This project was and continues to be funded by the Basque Government, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia and the City Council of Bilbao.

In 2017, she received the Botín Foundation Scholarship with which she moved to London (2017) to pursue a Master’s degree in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art (2017-2019). She has received numerous grants and awards and has carried out different residencies, national and international and will soon carry out one in Paradise Air (Tokyo, 2022). Her work is part of the permanent collection of the DKV Foundation, CA2M Museum, Botín Foundation and MonteMadrid Foundation.
