Nina Canell once made a sculpture for ten people that caused the electricity in their homes to go out simultaneously and unannounced once every month for a year. The transfer and distribution of energy has always been an integral preoccupation of her work. Canell assembles from the object-mediated equipment-structure of the world in order to question the idea of matter as inert, dead or instrumentalised. Her site-specific installation at Kraftwerk will engage calcite shells sourced from marine bivalves of the North Sea, one of the principal raw materials for making concrete, clashing and coalescing with the radical edified presence of the building.
