"Nomadia is an imaginary country, without traced borders, without land ownership. As it extends over nationalities, it extends over time – the past, present and the future are all interconnected. Nomadia is a country of travelers in tents. Its history is unwritten, and floats only from the mouth to ear of storytellers. To live in the tent is almost to live as one with nature and therefore people of Nomadia don´t consider Nature a property of man, but a man being part of the Nature. I consider this way of thinking and living very meaningful in today´s situation."

Renata Poljak, No Title (Blue), 2010-14.
"FOR A LONG TIME NOW, in life and in art, I have been on a pilgrimage for a deeper meaning in the process of a search that has taken me through different cities, projects, counties, partners, sensations … And I don’t know what exactly I am chasing and waiting for, if not for love and that particular occasion when the blue can become the blue azzuro, and one believes it is the truth, … for at least just a moment."

"Rising of the day over the ocean. Time based 16mm film which contemplates and investigates the quietest part of the day inspired by Stephan Mallarmé poem "Le vierge, le vivace et le bel aujourd'hui" (Virgin, vivid and in his all beauty today). The film is a single shoot made on Atlantic Ocean shore catching exactly the moment when the Sun enlights the view, the exact visible passage between night and day."
