Nora Kovats is a contemporary jewellery designer, illustrator, writer and botanical enthusiast from South Africa.
Through her creative practice, Nora has begun to open a window into an imaginary world where botanical and animal shapes merge to construct a unique visual language. As an ‘identity-hopper’, both South-African and European, she is interested in the way stories, layered over each other countless times, construct human identities. Identities are infinitely complex and fragmented compositions, stories-in-stories-in-stories, overlapping, fragile and fluid, yet so powerfully definitive.
Nora studied contemporary jewellery design at Stellenbosch University near Cape Town. After graduating with her Masters in Visual Arts, Nora set up her own studio. She relocated to Berlin. where she lives and works now, exhibiting both in Germany and internationally on a regular basis.
