Enrico Nagel (1987) is an autodidact collage artist and illustrator based in Paris. The works from his series “Substance” (2017) which was specifically created for the Curve show an interplay between colours, forms and textures resulting in a substance of its own. Enrico alienates different shapes and combines contrasting materials, merging them perfectly into new utopian bodies.
In his second series “Au Paradis des Couleurs” (2014) his photographic collaging process replaces the human elements of his subjects with inanimate objects. Figures are transfigured into hybridised beings, where the essentialist elements of the body are substituted for surreal collage.
