School, Centre or Area
Tania's research interests are focused on the liminal space between interior space and city (as enacted in detective fiction and manifested in architecture). Her practice explores the alter-ego as means to enquire about different aspects of modernity and the notion of ‘the normal’ through different media and creative outcomes. As she investigates ‘the normal’ her work uncovers the world of fantasy and the poetic imperfections embedded in the quotidian and the absurd.
Tania’s work has been exhibited and published internationally. In 2015 she received the Latin UK Visual Artist of the Year Award.
