Overview

In Katja Larsson sculptural practice, transformation plays an important part. With precision, materials, textures, and the colour of objects change, swap places and take new shapes in her process. Larsson often borrows the display of historic artefacts and museums in the installation of her work, elevating the objects as future relics of our time. Anthropocene and how we read historical objects is an important inspiration and infuse her conceptual framework. With skill and knowledge about her materials, Katja Larsson brings forth new narratives with a language driven by visual and tangible means.
