Mountain is a spatial wire drawing made on the basis of the artist’s photograph of Durmitor. The process involves analyzing the selected photograph by disciplined linear drawing.

The work Mountain was awarded at the 57th October Salon, The Marvellous Cacophony.

Elegant and sophisticated, ephemeral and insightful, the work depicts sharp and fragile forms that are able to penetrate consistently into the real world and scenes from everyday life, like landscapes. The work is poetic, beyond fashion, and contrary to what most young artists do today – politically correct works.

From the citation of the 57th October Salon Jury

The relationship between drawing, space and documentary photography that this work establishes, represents a stage in the context of the author’s years-long art and research practice. (…) As one of the possible sources of her media research, in her recent works – including this one – Nina has begun to examine individual items from her photo-diaries through her specific “wire drawings”. Metal wire, although difficult to shape, gets the precision of the drawn line in Nina’s meticulous processing. (…)

By the illusion of volume, created by overlapping of the wire andits shadow, this object transposes the proximity of the mountain massif.
