February 28–April 27, 2024
Nora Turato’s medium is language. In a practice that spans performance, video and graphic design, she examines the ephemeral nature of words and the instability of meaning. Using text as her artistic source material, Turato records and dissects the vernacular of our current visual culture and zeitgeist by collating appropriated words, fragments, and quotes and translating them into captivating incantations that harness the essence and the nonsense of what collectively moves us.
Sprüth Magers is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the artist opening late February 2024, which will feature a performance and premiere a new video work alongside her latest enamel panels across both floors of the Los Angeles gallery. The works constitute part of Turato’s sixth installment of pools – anthologies of found text she compiles from a myriad of sources. Picking up the thread of her commission for the 2023 Performa Biennial, as well as her 2023 solo exhibition at Sprüth Magers, Berlin, Turato investigates and interprets the mechanisms of the anxiety-driven culture of self-optimization.Read more about the show
