Bone, Thew, Ichor, Blood (I) and (II)
In Katja Larsson’s photographic and sculptural objects, kelp from the sea and deer antlers touch and exchange their physical attributes. The kelp and antlers were also found on the beach of Isle of Skye, and the sculptures in the photographs have been cast from nature – the kelp has turned into an almost bonelike structure while the antlers look soft and moist, cast in silicone rubber. The photographs are siliconmounted on plexi or glass and mounted in sculptural frames made by the artist. With a slightly tilted angle against the wall they make reference to displays in a natural history museum.
