Mid-Sentence
by Nina Canell & Robin Watkins

Composed of 64 found technical drawings of cables with corresponding textual content, Mid-Sentence is a small book that illustrates the inner engineering of the current. The flattened electricity and communication cables, along with the spliced text fragments and artist’s notes, articulate a long-standing interest in the relationship between words and energy, communication and distance, absence and presence. “Cable stumps are cross-sections of a vocabulary of interruptions. A cut-off form. Ending mid-sentence.”

Testing the intimate intersection of audience, object and event, Nina Canell’s sculptures have been described by curator Fredrik Liew as where “combinations of materials generates a vocabulary that summons up the imaginary”. This book is published as an appendix to Canell’s exhibition Mid-Sentence at Moderna Museet (2014), her first solo exhibition in Sweden.
