Palamós, Girona, 1978
Trained in several disciplines such as painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture and jewellery, Tania Font has worked on the scenography for many projects in theatre and television, as well as creating hyper-realist scientific sculptures for museums alongside the biologist Ramon López. Her own work as an artist, mainly sculpture and painting, is notable for the presence of the human figure, with special attention given to women. By seeking to explain subjective experiences, her work reflects upon the construction and deconstruction of the feminine subject, as well as the difficult relationship women have with the word: a long history of silences.
“I speak out through my sculpture much better than with my voice. About isolation, about the noise caused by thoughts within a closed circuit of neuroatypical mental processes and how, sometimes, we can feel that they surpass us. This is the concept of the series “Deconstruction”, in which I am immersed. Internal thoughts that can make us break our heads. ”
