The artwork and installations of the German artist-couple Lili Nalŏvi and Jesko Willert is closely related to their months of travel through time and space, journeys that have deeply influenced their very existence. By creating their Moods Environments Paintings, Nalŏvi and Willert create a highly atmospheric Gesamtkunstwerk in which they transform spaces, recycle lovingly chosen objects, intricately and imaginatIvely processing materials. The created spaces, grants an existential perception of life infused with intense sensuality. Within these created spaces their sensitive portraits and deeply soothing water landscapes are always an integral part of the installations. Their portraits show people of different ages, states of existence and time of life – at the moment when the mask falls. They allow an impartial view of the person – stripped of status, role and function, reflecting their innermost self. In 2015 in the context of the 56th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia Lili Nalŏvi and Jesko Willert were part of the exhibition “Personal Structures – Crossing Borders” with an expansive installation in Palazzo Bembo at the European Cultural Centre.
