Cove Park artist, Tania Perez Cordova is currently in residence at Gasworks, London from the 17th January- 10th April 2014.
For her residency at Gasworks, Córdova will be developing her practice further by exploring production processes as a new way of seeing and thinking about objects, and as a narrative tool for exploring time, relations and places.
Tania Pérez Córdova works with objects and their specific materiality. She claims that her work happens between questioning how to make something and how to make sense of something, and her work emerges out of her curiosity and focus upon the relationship between vision and conviction: how do we think about objects, the spaces between them and how can we think with or through objects. Working with various mediums, the production process plays an essential role in Córdova’s practice. It is from observing and interacting with the mechanics of the materials that her reflections upon objects and their configuration to another initiate. Developing out of this interest, an important part of her research has been focused on the idea of the tool, and thinking about how to invent a device, and how to use an object to create new objects.
