The Gap Inbetween (2)

Grounds for acquisition

Swedish artist Felicia Jansson (b. 1987) creates videos and small-object works whose common themes are hybridity, time and evolution. The fossilised tooth of a prehistoric shark and a plastic 3D copy of it made by the artist take our thoughts millions of years into the past and back. The natural alteration of materials over time is juxtaposed with a technologically generated rapid process.The purchase is the artist’s first work in the Kiasma Collections. (AM)
