Overview
The artist appropriates common objects and gives them a new meaning in another context, as an alchemist who re-presents elements with a new configuration. Nino Cais cuts, glues, sews, draws, he is inside and outside the work, is a character and an author, his works manifest themselves in a suspended time and space, recognizable but little explored by the spectator, so close and so far at the same time as its strangeness it's welcoming.
