Nicole Nadeau, ‘Everyone Thought I Was You_01’, 2016, Watermill Center Summer Benefit Auction 2016

Nicole Nadeau’s quest for identity as a twin informs her work, examining the poetic sensibility between similarity and individuality. Science, geometry, and ritual feature prominently, as well as her background in industrial design. Everyone Thought I Was You_01 (2016) is a provocative installation – tiles molded from Nadeau’s own breast form a tessellated, hexagonal composition. Nadeau’s work has been shown at Art Basel Miami Beach and Cooper Hewitt, The Smithsonian Design Museum, New York.
