    Nina Beier was born in 1975 in Aarhus, Denmark. She lives and works in Berlin, Germany. In Nina Beier’s series Plug, bathroom sinks are stuffed with cigars that have been hand-rolled to fit perfectly and suggestively into their drain pipe openings. These sculptural arrangements consider the cigar simultaneously as a handmade object, a historically traded merchandise and a symbol of power. They exist somewhere between an object, its representation, and our interpretation of it.
