Art Sheffield 2010 – Nina Canell

  • Nina Canell

Friday 05 March 2010

Nina Canell produces “communities” of objects in improvised formations quietly interacting with each other through ramshackle radiation or electromagnetic energy involving neon, water and other debris. Provisional objects conspire together, and modest objects are afforded the same attention that writer Georges Perec allows them. Her solo presentation here itself represents a temporary conjunction and community of objects, whose slow interaction plays out over the duration of the exhibition, for example as water affects concrete, and together questions the reliability and fixity of physical forms.
