Born 1980 in Tåstarp, Sweden. Currently based in Stockholm.


Carl Palm builds polyhedral discourses generated form conversations between objects of plural nature. The concept of "mixed media" finds here a clearer sense through his approach to objects: it considers relations of resemblance and contrast inside the exhibition room, the changing significance of the goods through changes and displacement, and the sculpture´s own memory. Not that far from animism, Palm approaches a wide sculptural practice from a post-curatorial behaviour, researching the inner capacity of the objects to interact inside the white-cube, being specially sensitive to their previous story outside the museum.
