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.
