Nora’s series “Silence is Golden” invites us to contemplate personal freedom through the perspective of beautiful women who have been bound and gagged.

Duetsch: Reden ist Silber… diese Redewendung hören wir nur allzu oft. Doch wurzeln unsere Identität und sogar ein erstaunlich großer Teil der Erfüllung unserer täglichen Bedürfnisse in den Worten, die wir sprechen.

Wir fragen, verlangen, äußern, beeinflussen; wir teilen Gedanken, Wünsche und Träume in Worten.

Was passiert, wenn wir das kurzzeitig nicht mehr können, nicht mehr wollen? Sind wir geknebelt weniger frei? Oder vielleicht freier?

Erkundet die verschiedenen Aspekte dieser “Unfreiheit” mit mir, lasst uns staunen über das Glück in der Stille.

English: Silence is Golden Speech is Silver… we hear this proverb too often. Yet we talk a lot. Our identities, our contact with others and even getting our daily needs met are deeply connected to the words we speak. We ask, we comment, we demand; we talk about our thoughts, our dreams, our desires.

What happens when we give up that ability for a short time or it is taken from us? Are we really less free when we are bound and gagged? Maybe more?

Come and explore the different aspects of this “bondage”, let us marvel at the bliss of Silence.

“In my series “Silence is Golden” I painted ball-gagged faces. We rely on words to communicate our inner world to people, to connect with one another. What drives people to take or give away the ability to speak in a safe, private, intimate setting? What does this vulnerable experience do to them? Are they becoming less themselves or more? Is Silence bliss?”
