Kjell Varvin

“When a new experiment is started a whole world of possibilities lies ahead. You know that by initiating it, the variations will multiply rapidly. Insignificant pieces of wood, plywood, iron rods and glass are collected and put together, mostly without knowing what will be the result. Single objects find a way to coexist in a kind of vulnerable harmony. Their instability is an expression of the general, fragile, temporary presence. The installations sometimes collapse before they can be documented with the digital camera.
I like to build and rebuild; to form structures and let them develop freely, see them succumb spontaneously and then re-emerge as totally different systems.
I am not trying to postpone the inevitable or prolong any illusion of stability. The result of my work should be understood as proposals, not final statements.” KV
