Buan, Ann Iren

Skulptur, tegning

There are several introductions to my work, all of which share equal importance. The materials I use; the physical process and how my work relate to the architecture of the exhibition room. Together these emphasize my interest in the vulnerable, the ongoing decay and ultimately the connection between sculpture and the human body.
My work insists on a continuous lifespan, often just holding on to it. There are elements of recycling; old works become new. There is also a reflection on the times we are in, the unstable and unpredictable. This sensation of vulnerability, and the unease of this emotion, is very much present in my work.
