Kari Cavén

KARI CAVÉN (b. 1954) works with recycled materials and everyday objects. He shapes and combines them in surprising ways. Cavén’s art not only touches upon Arte Povera but also on Fluxus, constructivism and surrealism, creating from them his inimitable Cavénism – sometimes funny and sometimes thoughtful but always surprising and of clear form.
