Tania Ruiz

Tania’s practice focuses on the visual arts, although previously she worked primarily in the film and video fields. She has exhibited her work internationally since 2000. The nature and use of the public space, first explored as a subject, gradually became central to Tania Ruiz’s artworks. Her art practice is therefore mainly focused on public places.  Among other temporary interventions, she created a luminous sculpture for the City of Vancouver in 2009. From 2006 to 2010 she created for Malmö Central station ‘Elsewhere’, the largest video-based European public art work. She is currently commissioned by the city of Orebro to create a video and web based public work. Tania Ruiz was born in Chile and educated mainly in Colombia and France. She is based in Paris where she follows in parallel an academic career as an associate professor of arts at St Denis University, Paris VIII.

Sonia Fernández Pan

escribe a través del arte y comisaría exposiciones. De la escritura le interesa la posible autonomía del texto en relación a aquello de lo que habla y el cruce entre conocimiento teórico y experiencia subjetiva. De la exposición le interesa su potencial como proceso de investigación colectivo y de proximidad emocional. Frente a la noción del comisario como aquel que es experto sobre uno o varios temas y hace de ventrílocuo sobre las obras y los artistas, entiende la práctica comisarial desde una posición de fragilidad, tanto de los discursos como de los roles asumidos en el contexto del arte.

Es autora de esnorquel, un archivo online a través de podcast, conversaciones y textos, centrado en el contexto artístico de Barcelona. Escribe para diferentes medios, artistas y publicaciones. Ha comisariado F de Ficción (Barcelona), El Futuro no Espera (Barcelona) y Microfísica del Dibujo (A Coruña). Es editora del libro de entrevistas A Brief History of the Future . Actualmente prepara el programa de intervenciones artísticas Diógenes sin complejo, para el Arxiu Dossiers del centro de producción artística Hangar en Barcelona.
