Canell challenges traditional perceptions of sculpture; incorporating electrical currents, atmospheric elements, stray socks and chewing gum into her creations.
The artist's unorthodox use of objects and materials can be seen as an attempt to articulate the intuitive understanding we have of our surroundings.
