Nelson Pernisco


Born in 1993 in Paris, Nelson Pernisco is a visual artist, co-founder of the Wonder collective, evolving in the discipline of installation that cultivates an ecosystem on the ashes of our thermo-industrial civilization.

From the school of arts décoratifs in Paris to the urban wastelands he squatted, from the institutional framework to alternative forms of life, Nelson Pernisco early understood that the organization of space and time depends on the wills that seize it.

His first works formulate in this sense a critique of the devices of power, surveillance and constraint, taking the form of brutalist constructions with anarchic forms which directly echo the instability of the world. The artist therefore puts the seditious energy of his beginnings at the service of a logic of artistic resistance: from Molotov cocktails to charred debris, the use of industrial or technological waste, poor and often recovered materials, serves him in effect to emphasize the violence of a system, ironically on the perpetuation of the state of emergency or the standardization of capitalist logics.

The imagination of materials is therefore always dependent on the political meanings they cover, but recently, the critique of the making of history, and of the readings that can be made of it, has given way to a reflection on art. as a force of proposal. Driven by a forward-looking ambition, it reflects the decisive step that his work marks by moving from the purely dissident act to a more projective thought, from a worried dystopian vision to the possibility of a concrete utopia.
