LONDON.- Camden Arts Centre presents a solo exhibition of work by Swedish artist Nina Canell (b.1979). Canell's practice questions the certainty of sculpture, giving substance to the intangible and lightness to the physical. Nina Canell: Near Here opened at Camden Arts Centre on 17 January 2014 and admission is free.

Canell’s seemingly unorthodox use of objects and materials can be seen as an attempt to articulate our intuitive understanding of the conditions around us. Transforming electrical currents, atmospheric elements, stray socks, or chewing gum into sculptural components, her assemblages fuse matter, light and sound to create delicate and ephemeral testing grounds.

Nina Canell: Near Here comprises a new series of works responding to the specific architectural environment of Camden Arts Centre. The gallery space has prompted an exploration of the ‘unbuilt’ using elements that tend to condense or disperse. Drawn to the subtlety of fluctuating forces and the minutiae of perception, Canell’s work traces the innate bond we have with our surrounding atmosphere. Testing this intimate intersection of audience, object, and event, the understated outcomes of her work are curious, yet poetic.

Nina Canell: Near Here is on show in Gallery 3 at Camden Arts Centre. On show at the same time is an exhibition by Silke Otto-Knapp in Galleries 1 & 2.

The exhibition has been developed in collaboration with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. A presentation of the exhibition will follow at BALTIC from 18 April until 20 July 2014.

Nina Canell was born 1979 in Vxj, Sweden, educated in Dublin, Ireland and lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Recent solo exhibitions include: Lautlos (two person show with Rolf Julius), Hamburger Bahnhof Museum fr Gegenwart, Berlin (2013); Stray Warmings, Midway Contemporary, Minneapolis (2013); Tendrils, The Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2012); Into the Eyes as Ends of Hair, Cubitt Gallery, London (2012); Ode to Outer Ends, Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel (2011); To Let Stay Projecting As A Bit of Branch On A Log By Not Chopping It Off , Mumok, Vienna (2011); and Five Kinds of Water , Der Kunstverein, Hamburg (2009).
