Nuria Dolphin’s practice centers around an exploration of the body as a vessel of experience and memory. This informs her interdisciplinary approach towards re-contextualizing material, and gives her the ability to transform the medium to reference memory held invisibly in one's mind. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she seeks to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria but are based more on subjective associations and formal parallels. Dolphin seek to shift formal qualities of the work in order to communicate her investigation of how perception influences identity.

    Much of Dolphin’s work is anchored in the documentation of personal events, both past and present.  She often explores simple, everyday, processes that are commonly overlooked or under-explored as a way to expand an understanding of representation beyond the narrative. By shifting the formal qualities of the work, the body becomes amplified in the way we steer our understanding of the world, and how we record experience. The way our memory’s images and sequences become warped and disrupted over time, prove that moments are truly ephemeral for they do not preserve within our minds the way we perceive them to. Therefore, she approach the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality, knowing that the source is unstable.
