Black Lake Monologue is an annotated text from a performance and lecture, outlining Nel's extensive research through her studio practice surrounding the Isdalskvinnen case.

Nel's research and subsequent exhibition at Tag Team Studio centred around the voice of the silenced woman, a woman who’s public profile has been shaped by the male gaze through exaggerated representations and rumours of the single travelling woman. Leaving aside the great narratives of history and their polished protagonists, her investigations arise out of a fascination with micro stories of female individuals and the uncertainties, myths, speculations and distorting representations surrounding them.
