Inflected objects

Nina Canell (1979, Sweden) lives and works in Berlin. Canell’s sculptures and installations materialize the intangible. 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 that question the most basic infrastructural systems we depend on - that of light, energy and natural resources. Canell has shown widely internationally. Amongst others she has had solo shows at Moderna Museet Stockholm, Camden Art Centre London, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, Kunsthalle Fridericianum Kassel and MuMoK Vienna. Additionally, the artist took part in various international group exhibitions, i.a. at the Biennale de Lyon, Witte de With Rotterdam, the Sydney Biennale, the Liverpool Biennale, MoMA New York, Manifesta 7 and the Gwangju Biennale.
