Born in 1980, Nina Boas lives and works in Rotterdam.
After graduating from the AKI in Enshede (Netherlands) (1999-2003), she obtained a scholarship for one year from the Dutch Arts Council, BKVB. She has been active as a performance artist for several years and has shown her work in China, Finland, Spain, in different performance events. She has made performances in collaboration with choreographs, musicians and dancers. Next to her practice as a performance artist she also organizes a yearly performance event PAE in Rotterdam.
Her work consist of layers, in the use of the mixed media, drawing, building installations, live constructions, performing, and playing with scale and creating a bond between reality and the imaginary world. These layers, developing from the performance are tools to express a story line which investigates, and actively pushes the audience to become a part of the work, raising the question of the ‘Here and Now’.
