nova Milne is a two-person artist who uses intimacy as their primary communal structure. Works may variously be described as video-sculptures, performance, drawings or restorative actions. These often find gravity in assembling a gesture (or encounter) as a poetic or disruptive transgression across a breach of time/s. nova Milne's work often reincorporates found micro- historical or biographical ephemera, events or recordings to unleash a latent occult potential from its constituent parts, towards an altered psychological, social or confounding emotive and material plasticity. Intersubjectivity is an ongoing curiosity that segues into science and the paranormal, pervaded by transformation, longing, empathy, absurdity and unboundedness.
