Tania Candiani

The work of Tania Candiani (Mexico City, 1974) has been developed in various media and practices that maintain an interest in the complex intersection between phonetic, graphic, linguistic, symbolic and technological languages. He has worked with different narratives of
association by reordering, remixing and playing with correspondences between technology, knowledge and thought, using the idea of organization and reorganization as discourse, and critical thinking and empirical research as material for production.

The translation between diverse systems of representation is key in the materialization of her body of work. She has created interdisciplinary working groups in diverse fields, consolidating intersections between art, design, literature, music, architecture and science, with an emphasis on early technologies and their history in the production of knowledge.

Her projects relate to craft, labor, tradition, sound, synesthesia, rhythm and translation. He has a special interest in site-specific projects because of the precise social-historical links they trigger. Candiani uses historical records and archives as materials, as if she were weaving, which leads her to intuitive forms of materialization.
