Nina Canell

Near Here

18 April 2014 - 20 July 2014

Swedish artist Nina Canell (born Växjö, Sweden, 1979) makes sculptures that give substance to the intangible and lightness to the physical. Drawn to the subtlety of fluctuating forces and the minutiae of perception, she traces the innate bond we have with our surrounding atmosphere. Near Here comprises a new series of works. Transforming electrical currents, atmospheric elements, stray socks or chewing gum into sculptural components, her assemblages fuse matter, radiance and sound to create delicate and ephemeral testing grounds.

Nina Canell: Near Here is developed in collaboration with Camden Arts Centre, London.
