Tania Candiani

Tania Candiani explores the expanded idea of translation, extended to the experimental field through the use of visual, sound, textual and symbolic languages. Many of her projects consider the universe of sound and the politics of listening as a tool capable of expanding and transforming perceptions, both human and non-human. A fundamental part of her practice is related to feminist policies and practices, understanding them as a communal, affective and ritual experience. Her production involves interdisciplinary work groups in various fields, consolidating intersections between art, literature, history, music, architecture, and science with an emphasis on ancestral knowledge, its techniques and technologies. Candiani is a member of the National System of Art Creators of Mexico; a former recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts, and the Smithsonian Institution Research Grant for Artists, among others. In 2015 Candiani represented Mexico at the 56th Venice Biennale.
