DE 24/01/2017 - 25/02/2017 A




The newest member of the cast of Vermelho, Tania Candiani has the first exhibition of her work in the gallery with Pausa, a video from 2012.

The artist is preparing her first solo show for Vermelho for May 2017.

Tania Candiani was born in Mexico City in 1974 and has in her curriculum passages through important exhibitions and institutions such as the 56th Venice Biennial as the representative of Mexico, the XI Biennial of Cuenca, in Ecuador, and the IV Monterrey Biennial in Mexico.


The métier of the scribe is as ancient as writing itself. In Mexico, although it is tending to disappear, the craft of the scribe who writes by request remains active today and presents to us, through this work, a reflection on interpretation.

In Pausa (Pause), we see a video that starts from the following idea: writers orally tell a story to the scribe that turns it into writing. The story passes through the writer´s mouth, through his voice, through the scribe's ear, through his deciphering (and ours), through his initial laying down of the text (a draft, which alludes to the transformation that occurs between the manuscript trace and the typewriter's keys), and finally his translation. The story returns transformed.
