Nolvenn Le goff
In 2010 Nolvenn decided to make her entrance into the world of fine arts. She questioned her social role as an artist, what subjects and themes she was interested on and how she could reflect them in her future projects. During this period, she embarked on 2 projects dealing with her concern for environmental issues: one being an artistic recycling project and other titled Paper Cities, which was one of her most rewarding projects due to the visual and technical development. Paper Cities won 3rd place at the bARTcelona International Contemporary Art Reward in 2010.
Pursuing her dreams further, Nolvenn founded Talent Lab in 2014, a small gallery and studio space in Barcelona. Talent Lab became a meeting point for artists and the public to grow and inspire each other. One of these artists introduced Nolvenn to the world of Sacred Geometry, inspiring her next project: Harmonious Sets.
This new project, purely geometric, seeks to raise awareness that we all share a common origin and that our actions affect the whole and ourselves.
So far, all her projects are based on a philosophy of life, but these reflections and the personal evolution of the artist led her to her latest work: The Wings. This is her most personal and intimate series.
The Wings are full of symbolisms and metaphors: the wing of an angel represents the values and the purity that Nolvenn tries to maintain in her personal life, a push to go against the social norm, where selfishness seems to prevail. The Pegasus Wing represents the world of fantasy, magic and mysticism that serves as Nolvenn’s place of refuge and inspiration to follow her dreams. The Bird Wing represents her bond with nature and of course responsible freedom.
On one hand heiress of the mysticism of Mexican culture and on the other of the Celtic culture, Le Goff impregnates, perhaps even without knowing it, a halo of magic, fantasy, preservation and purity in each of her pieces. But that is not all. In parallel to the system’s values that shape this series, the artist brands each work piece with a personal touch by assuming herself as an inhabitant of her own utopia “made up of empathy and solidarity in balance with nature and love”, a daring and plausible statement, especially for raising as in such times of connected individualism.
