Tania Pérez Córdova Biography

Tania Pérez Córdova (b. 1979, Mexico) quiet and contemplative works relate to temporality and the lifespan of objects. With her installations having often been likened to film sets, she uses language to situate each work within a larger narrative, forgoing the autonomy of objects in favour of their integral role within a nexus. Her practice spans across media, incorporating sculpture, photography, found objects, and activation or performance. Objects function as characters in Córdova's installations. With her guidance and care they seem to undergo narrative arcs and inherent changes. Verbal clues in artwork titles incite the viewer to consider both the lifespan of the object and the practices and actions that were involved in its making. She considers media in an abstract sense, often embedding actions and situations into an object as a material itself. Such references to the world beyond the sculpture itself create a vivid sense of time and space outside the gallery. She strategically widens the nuanced relationship between artwork and viewer to include external places, people, and actions.
