In her work Nuria Fuster García investigates the material part of reality, not only as a device for self-reflection, but also as a way of establishing points of attention in behaviours and processes that evidence the natural hegemony of things within the domestic context or other specific contexts. She picks up the functional aesthetic that surrounds her daily work, putting in dialogue materials of different kinds, generating a new space, an interface, where the material goes from object to subject to speak for itself.
Her work is an attempt to understand nature and decode the material itself, which makes up its reality.
She understands her sculpture as an intimate dialogue with the world, with the desire to be able to give her works a living autonomy that makes them yawn, smile and dance.
Strongly attracted by the object, as a symbol, as a bodily scheme attached to our body, as a social poem, as a time capsule, as writing and influenced by having grown up in a textile industrial environment, she underlines the materials as witnesses of life, making visible how they can help the (re)narration of one's own reality. She extends the concept of object beyond our visual perceptual limit, understanding as such gravity itself, pollution or the dust we generate.
