26 Sep TANIA CANDIANI
TANIA CANDIANI (Mexico, 1974)
KIOSKO SONORO, 2018
Steel structure, trumpets, tubes, concrete base
To create this interactive piece, the artist used as a starting point a traditional kiosk, and the social and cultural role it plays in the public square.
The sound sculpture reflects on the historic burden contained within this type of construction. It does so through its structure, which comprises a reticulated installation of trumpets, connected via rigid hoses to a single transmission point that can be activated by the public. The piece then acquires new attributions by allowing for a direct personal experience in a public environment.
