Nina Schuiki (°1983, AT) is a visual artist based in Berlin, Germany.

"Her sculptures are translucent, delicate, and reflective. They span multiple temporalities and affects and hover between moments of before, after, and not yet. While the literal figure of the body is absent from the work, her objects’ surfaces become like a skin—a fleshy screen in which feelings may be sensed, embodied, and given texture. Working in such art historically laden media like glass, wax, and light, Schuiki gestures toward the atmospheric hollowness of Minimalism and, at the same time, counters this aesthetics with a romantic sense of intimacy and nostalgia." (Anna Cahn, 2022)
