Nina Canell was born 1979 in Växjö, Sweden, and currently lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. Her work seeks ways to address sculpture as a restless form with fleeting properties. Relating spatial and structural concerns to that elusive fabric which constitutes the melancholic nature of being, the work facilitates a place in which matter and non-matter hold hands through carefully balanced sculptural happenings.
