Focusing on both the physical and psychological nature of objects and materials, Nabuqi’s work deals with the relationship between the sculptural objects and the bodily, and explores human perceptions in either confrontational or immersive spatial contexts. Her bronze or aluminium sculptures propose anew the independence of the hand-made, sculpted objects, and emphasise its evolving relationship with the bodily  in the age of the anthropological. Her installations, on the other hand, assemble readymades and industrial materials - from mirrors, lamps, artificial plants to train rails and a life-size model of a cow - and creates enveloping settings in and around which the spatial politics of the active, viewing subject is delineated.
