Both artists are pioneers of a movement in contemporary art that, in responding to a world that increasingly appears dematerialized as a result of digitalization, turns attention to the material phenomena of reality. Intangible facts such as communication, ideas, or emotions, are given concrete physical presence in the often artistically atypical materials of Canell’s and Kiaer’s sculptural installation works. In their artistic practice, Kiaer and Canell share a conscious openness that, despite great precision, also allows for chance and favors the fragility of intermediate states, indecisiveness, and doubt over definitive truths.
