Bernaudt Smilde – Nimbus I & II
Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde maybe doesn’t get out to see the daylight enough, it seems the only logical explanation to why he would create a cloud in a room. Drawing on a nebulous concept of the “physical presence of transitional spaces,” Smilde’s first Nimbus installation, cleverly entitled Nimbus I was seen last October at Probe and the latter, Nimbus II, was recently seen at Hotel MariaKapel earlier this month. The cloud sculptures are only available for the viewer to experience for a moment, before before it dissipates entirely. But it does get you remembering all those cloud names you remembered in primary school.
