    Reflexologies

    Nina Canell

    Five years of Nina Canell's sculptural work, documented and generously illustrated in color.

    Cable cuts, energetics, and gunk: moving back and forth between a group of core subjects, Reflexologies converts the past five years of Nina Canell's sculptural work into a 384-page book. It is interrupted throughout by a lagged conversation and three new texts: Martin Herbert reflects on subsea cable stumps and the generative potential of gaps; Jennifer Teets considers flexible pneus and viscous processes; and Robin Watkins tackles a slow real-time collaboration. Images have been grouped in a loosely chronological sequence, allowing exhibition views to fold out into parallel trajectories that emphasize Canell's ongoing preoccupation with the configuration and breakdown of material relations.
