Eleanor Elks Herrmannsen’s practice is concerned with examining the way in which we categorise and make sense of everyday objects in our environment. The sculptures she creates often concentrate on objects that are defined or understood through their purpose and use, and by playfully re-representing these objects and removing them from their original context, her work aims to uncover certain truths about our relationship to the objects we choose to surround ourselves by. Often her sculptures exist in the gap between recognition and abstraction and play upon how these objects and materials have become part of a collective knowledge and a visual language.
