With her sculptural arrangements of organic and synthetic materials, Nina Canell dedicates herself to making often hidden processes tangible to the senses. By combining found objects such as copper pipes, branches, wires or melon seeds, Canell dissolves visual hierarchies and explores the communicative potential of substances and things. Canell's annual gift is also a symbol of energy transfer and the desire to connect immaterial forces. Nina Canell (born 1979, Vaxjö, SE) has had solo exhibitions at the following institutions: Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (2019); Kunstmuseum St. Gallen; S.M.A.K. Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent (2018); Artist's Institute, New York (2017); Camden Art Centre, London and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2014). Canell lives and works in Berlin.
