Kaari Upson often uses elements from the enviroment she grew up with to make casts, which she then reshapes and reproduces in her sculptural work. The three unique pieces that Upson created in connection with her 2019 exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel are casts made of urethan mixed with pigments from standard household rolls of kitchen paper, based on forms which were taken using latex from the original object. As in her Basel exhibition, Upson thus returns to the place of her childhood, immersing herself deeply in the trauma of her origins, which is both universal and very specific.
