Melbourne based emerging artist Nabilah Nordin works though an understanding of materiality to create sensual and visceral abstract sculptures. With their oozy, drippy and rough surfaces Nordin’s sculptures are beguilingly playful, offering the viewer an encounter with fantastical, or seemingly impossible other worlds. Utilising non-traditional sculptural materials, and a process Nordin refers to as ‘unlearning’ the artist eschews sculptural traditions in an attempt to create her own idiosyncratic sculptural language.

Nordin’s work has been exhibited locally and internationally. Recently she has participated in the Singapore Biennale, group exhibitions at Artbank, the Institute of Modern Art, Neon Parc, The Commercial and Bundoora Homestead Art Centre. In 2020 Nordin was a finalist in the Churchie emerging artist award. Her exhibition at Heide will be her first major museum solo.
