Opening Friday, January 17th at Camden Arts Centre, London is “Near Here,” a solo exhibition of sculptures by Swedish artist Nina Canell (b. 1979).  The work gives substance to the intangible and lightness to the physical. Drawn to the subtlety of fluctuating forces and the minutiae of perception, Canell traces the innate bond we have with our surrounding atmosphere. Her seemingly unorthodox use of objects and materials attempts to transfer, exchange and share forms of intuitive knowledge. 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. “Near Here” comprises a new series of works which will respond to the architectural environment of Camden Arts Centre.


Opening Reception: Friday, January 17th, 2014.


“Near Here” is on view through March 30th, 2014.
