LUJAN CANDRIA

( MIAMI )

El mar, el siempre mar...”

Inspirada en el poema “El Mar”de Jorge Luis Borges.

Lujan Candria is a multidisciplinary artist who uses a wide array of media, such as painting, objects, photography, sound and video to create introspective work of art. She plays with lights and shadows to talk about reminiscences, memory and oblivion. Candria often uses the repetition and juxtaposition of a variety of images all grouped together with subtle variations of light to create intimate narratives and condensed poetics loaded with nostalgia.

 

 

She graduated in sculpture from Escuela Nacional Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón, (U.N.A.) and Escuela Nacional de Cerámica Fernando Arranz, Argentina. In addition she studied Applied Musical Computer Science at Fonorama Escuela and Image Editing at Mac Training Center (UNTREF).

 

She was selected by CCEBA (Medialab) to take part in the following courses: Digital Video for Audiovisual Artists, Programming for Artists and a seminar on Sonorous Art.

 

Candria has been awarded with the Casa Wabi x ArtReview Residency Prize 2019.
