Artyści » Nicol Taubinger

(1972) was born in Munich, studied at the English Institute in Heidelberg and went on to study jewellery and metal-smithing at the University of Oregon, USA. She presented her work at a number of exhibitions. She works mainly in the fields of art jewellery, installation, and painting. For her work, Taubinger uses objects that surround us to such
an extent that we often do not even notice them. She finds them in the streets, in recycling yards and plastic containers and puts them in a new context, suddenly making them visible. Her polymer objects exist in splendid colours and forms. When she sees heaps of plastic bottle caps or other plastic objects, they appear to her as gems full of emotional intensity. She lives in Prague.
