Thomas Nolf

Thomas Nolf (1986°, Kortrijk) lives and works in Brussels and Sarajevo. His work explores the legitimacy and opportunity of heritage in relation to specific political and economical contexts. By bridging photography, sculpture and other media with actions, Thomas Nolf uses controversial historical (im)materiality to make a statement that goes beyond the controversy it focusses on. In his practice he often combines a documentary approach with a performative provocation by trying to intervene in a place with our without consent. This results for example in ‘Pitchfork’ (2016) where he documents youngsters building a new monument in front of a devastated one in Croatia. Or in ‘Pyramid Hills’ (2016), where he tries to exhibit his work on the controversial subject of the Bosnian Pyramids in the National Museum of Bosnia. The interaction between himself, his work and its context plays an important role in both the evolution and presentation of his projects.
