At Pixelache festival Nabb+Teeri build installations that function as meeting places.
Nabb+Teeri is an artist duo formed in 2008 by Finnish artists Janne Nabb (b. 1984) and Maria Teeri (b. 1985). Their practice is characterized by the preconditions of working in changing locations.
Their polymorphic works are compositions based on somewhat messy interactions and fusions between the artists and other things. Nabb+Teeri work with material surplus of both human and non-human activity. Alongside of borrowed, recycled and remodeled or found materials and objects, their stratified, mesh-like works include elements created with 3D modeling or other digital technologies. These often ephemeral works change their form throughout long processes. Recently they have worked with local materiality such as encounters with invertebrates, or the beachcombed shock tube detonator debris from the westerly bays of Suomenlinna island.
