In her fragile installations, the Swedish artist Nina Canell (*1979, lives in Berlin) transfers man-made objects and ‘natural’ objets trouvés into experimental arrangements that are concerned with changeability. In Canell’s practice, the materials themselves become protagonists, developing their own temporal and narrative logic. Evaporation Essays brings forth a number of reflections on the Canell’s work, drawing from scientific experiments, intuitive logic, friendship, and the poetic potential in oddments of thought.
