Esther Nienhuis

A longing to be elsewhere is the central theme of Nienhus’ work. The artist approaches the concept of unfulfilled desire as a condition in which Heimweh
(longing for the known) and Fernweh (longing for the unknown) intertwine. The artist makes this metaphorical boundary perceptible, uncovering that which isolates the here and now from other realities.
