NELLI TANNER

My work has roots in everyday objects and behaviour. I collect old household objects which were often wooden and made by man and a knife.

My other intrest lies in broken but kept things. A broken leather wallet nobody wanted but it’s kept as a family heritage. A self-fixed hammer that looks useful but it is useless.

I copy and imitate these objects, also the way they were made: using a knife or other time consuming tools like a hand drill instead of a machine drill. By breaking and rearranging I’m translating the objects again.

Beside this I’m on a constant research for habits and rutins for example how you hold your wallet or is the wallet wearing you.
