Karin Auran Frankenstein
1982, Malmö, Sweden

My practice is examining through craft and theory and materialisations in diverse combinations such as clay, ceramics, textiles, wood, sound, performative scenarios and/or moving images. The works tend to touch our consciousness of diverse forms, the physical flesh, the intangible spiritual and/or human behavior.  I relate to the community I work in, questions about class, societal organization and environmental considerations are central. Nature fascinates me and I often pick method and inspiration from it, as well as from a laboratory work with its materials.
