Martin Cordiano practice delves into how space signify us and in turn how it is signified by us. He aims to renegotiate cultural agreements involving the comprehension of our surroundings through absences, limits and encounters. He understands space as a malleable matter  with a narrative and a memory, a transforming ability and the possibility to lay across language, subjects and time. Rather than defining space, he questions its meanings, using the construction of space as a metaphor for language construction. He explores the contradiction between our seemingly dynamism and the rigidness and static condition of the places we inhabit through fragments and symbols, aware that the sum of parts can be bigger than the whole.
