Untitled (Distant relations between lovers could fail by the lack of your true focus) is an invitation for the audience to participate. The visitor is given instructions by means of a video. In the space, the visitor will find stacks of art magazines and posters that he can use to make paper arrows. These arrows are then used to point and shoot at a series of targets. On these targets we can read the title of the work. The targets are mounted on a wall of polystyrene.
Nuur criticizes the problematic relation between the visual arts and the literary texts that try to interpret these works of art. As in many of Nuur’s other works, he plays with the element of language and with sensory experiences, and questions our understanding of the artwork as an object and the way in which this object is contextualized.
