Bernice Nauta: Schelm (2019/2020)

Bernice Nauta works with fictional characters and stories in a deeply personal universe. Figures like Schelm, a detective personified by a drop of water.

In her editions, Schelm allows the owner of the coin to leave important decisions up to him, flipping it for either “yes” or “no”. The editions explore authorship, repetition and plurality within one’s psyche. What does authorship mean when behavior is often copied?
