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 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 pick method and inspiration from it, as well as from a laboratory work with its materials.
