Old Butchery / Poznań Biennale
Poznań, Poland


During the Fine Art European Forum / Poznań Conference Biennale, Nordby exhibited at the Old Butchery Complex, inviting fruit flies to fill the exhibition space. The title, To Tole, together with premises between the abandoned factory, the filled jars and fruit flies, refers to the function of attraction and plays on the notion of inviting the intruder.

“The work centres on the toling of subjects, through the implied act of attraction. The subjects are unable to represent themselves, and force the viewer to consider meaning beyond the subject. Fruit flies and rats are presented as the desired subjects to show/attract – but what identity can these creatures actually carry for the viewer, other than associations that supersedes their own identity?”
