Nina was born in 1996, is of Sri Lankan origin, and graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris with honors in 2023. Her exhibition "Chat noir, Chou Blanc" plunges us into a universe where the sacred flirts with the everyday, through installations combining ceramics, tattooed leather and everyday objects.

She invites us to rediscover everyday objects from a different angle, recuperating, modeling and transforming the little things into fabulous pieces and creating spaces-temples where the intimate and the sacred merge. Nina reinvents the artisanal gesture in an age of global overproduction, celebrating the small, invisible gestures of our daily rituals.

Handling ceramics like a virtuoso, she creates zones of meditation and contemplation, reinventing our relationship with space and time. With Nina Jayasuriya, the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
