Through a research encompassing a variety of media – from sculpture to photography, from installation to writing – the practice of Mexican Tania_portraitartist Tania Pérez Córdova focuses on the seemingly paradoxical relationship between the materiality of making and its inherent narrativity. Her work looks at objects as ciphers for abstract situations, still remaining faithful to their formal and conceptual coordinates. In Perez Córdova’s practice, the clashing between an object’s temporality and its physical appearance reveals the unexpected emerging of personal narratives, interrupted stories, fragments of dialogues or simple abstract moods, transforming her sculpturally-rich vocabulary into a quasi-performative approach to object-making.In 2014 she was awarded the Shelagh Wakely Residency Award, hosted in partnership with the Elephant Trust and Gasworks, London.
