Nico created and performed a new site specific work for Supernaculum: “I was inspired by the idea of the "last drop" and wanted to create a water-inspired, immersive work using projection and performance. The audience is "submerged" into an imaginary underwater world of blue light and watery visuals while you are read ‘bedtime’ stories by a ‘trash to treasure’ mermaid. The idea of drowning in an underwater world reflects the real danger faced by rising sea levels due to climate change.” Nico used the hotel’s original four poster bed and furniture from the Purple room as part of her installation.
Nico Reddaway creates media installation artworks with a performance element. Nico tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, she likes to involve the viewer in a way that is physical and sensory. Her media installation works demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story in a dreamlike or imaginary way. By exaggerating aspects inherent to our society, her works play on people's imagination and absurdist thinking.
