Time: January 9, 2013, at 16
Location: Kungl. Konsthögskolan, Flaggmansvägen 1 (Skeppsholmen). The lecture hall, floor 4

Karin Sander’s work is multi-layered, multi-faceted, and yet distinctive. Inspired by the surrounding environment, site-specific situations, intricate themes, and precise questioning, she develops ideas and then carefully delegates the task of carrying them out to assistants, scientists, technicians, equipment, or machines. For the viewer, the results are surprising, revealing an unusual perspective of previously familiar things.Her works show interventions in given situations, or else delineate subtle alterations: a chicken’s egg in [for example] the exhibition Leiblicher Logos (for example) is polished until its shell reflects everything surrounding it.
