Composed of a selection of mixed media, Bo Christian Larsson installations are highly unusual and very enticing.

The juxtaposition of various different materials used to create each of these sculptures make for very intriguing works that draw the viewer in. An old-fashioned sailboat model in all black seems to morph seamlessly into a modern black leather handbag, creating a blend of old world and new.

Bird heads seem to rip through the plastic tubing that surrounds them, as though cracking through a strangely oblong eggshell. Vintage suitcases are turned into dollhouses and grandfather clocks are given giant wooden feet. The Bo Christian Larsson Installations take items that would be recognizable and completely transforms them.
