Tania Pérez Córdova

April 15–August 20, 2017
An unabiding factor is crucial to Pérez Córdova’s objects: the unknown third party—referenced but never identified—generating mystery. This unspecified force, reliant on chance, is observed with the intimate details applied to them, which transfers into a form of generosity. There is a rich and potentially vast space between her sculptures encountered and the alternate lives they carry on, as their materials suggest, transforming them into intimate events. Always evolving, the viewer witnesses just one of many iterations within the larger episode that makes up the entirety of an object’s existence. This is only the present. Nothing is finite.
