Nina Canell

Sculptures that radiate ephemeral powers and fragile vitality.

The fragile installations of Nina Canell (born 1979 in Sweden, lives and works in Berlin) are essays on changeability. Electrical equipment and neon tubes establish sculptural, temporary, almost performative connections to water, wood, and stones in which the individual materials influence one another and are constantly in motion. Based on her work with scientific and pseudo-scientific experiments and with natural phenomenon, the fragile vitality of Canell s sculptures sometimes calls our perception of reality into question. She is interested in the unnoticed and unfathomable qualities that so often seem to be lost in everyday life.

Evaporation Essays is the first extensive monograph on the artist and includes
sculptures from the past three years.

With texts by Lilian Haberer and Regina Barunke, Xander Karskens, Caomhín Mac Giolla Léith, Pádraic E. Moore, and Chris Sharp and a glossary by Melanie Bono and Annette Hans.
