Nico Krijno explores photography at the blurry intersection of collage, painting, sculpture and performance. His efforts result in unique abstractions and arrangements. He describes the process of photographing these ephemeral structures as “a private, physical performance, where the camera is the audience”.
Often working with discarded materials, Krijno interprets and reorganises them in the hope of discovering alternative meanings. Using his own expressive and physical movements, he creates a direct link between the human body and the natural flow of creating.
