Karin Törnell’s exhibition Vitala delar at Galleri Glas

By on September 2, 2018

Karin Törnell explores in her new exhibition the vital parts of life – including those we can not control themselves.

In Vitala Delar at Galleri Glas, Karin Törnell takes the entire room in demand with her oven-cast glass sculptures. The exhibition has also been interpreted by Magnus Florin.

– My works circle around those parts of us that are completely vital and partly beyond the words, and about the fact that we can not shape our lives as precisely as we may want to believe – that we are not always in the driver’s seat. In today’s society it is desirable with control. But control is often the opposite of life’s existence. We do not like to share the stories that don’t have a good end, but life affects us all, both good and bad. With the exhibition, I want to convey the experience of being human and everything that means with it, says Karin Törnell.

Karin Törnell, born 1966, is educated at Konstfack and the California College of the Arts. She has performed the most individual exhibitions at her former gallerist Inger Molin and most recently at Galleri NeC in Paris, 2014. Karin Törnell also participated in the exhibition Glass is Tomorrow at the Culture House 2015. She is represented, among other things, at the National Museum and Röhsska.

Karin Törnell is also famous for her many public assignments. To the latest are Andetag and Fotfäste, her contribution to the art of the City Banan in Stockholm, where the works are passed by thousands of people daily.

The exhibition opened on Thursday, August 30, and continues until October 11th.
