Karl Larsson presents solo exhibition Camilla at Paris’ Shanaynay opening October 20 and running to November 17.
Larsson is a multi-disciplinary artist and poet, with a focus on ‘spatial experience, embodiment and activism.’ The title of the show is a reference to the infant daughter in Virgil’s Aeneid, who was saved from harm by being thrown across a river. The press release frames the show within this moment of travelling through the air, the formless horror;
“Destruction of worlds, outside of the room. Destruction of rooms. Some children end up floating in the Mediterranean sea. They appear, then disappear, re-appear and start circulating. Sometimes a baby spins and spins until many years have passed. I don’t want to ask myself what conclusion there is to draw from all the data in the world. I want to ask what there is to unlearn from what is disappearing in front of our eyes?”
