Florencia Sadir

Florencia Sadir (San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, 1991) is an artist who explores her native land of the Calchaquí Valleys, and investigates inherited knowledge and community learning. Her installations, sculptures and drawings are composed with natural materials, such as clay or basketry woven with vegetable fibers, to create objects that invite us to reflect on how the times of work, production and consumption have become disconnected from life cycles. She studied at the Faculty of Arts of the National University of Tucumán. She completed the Artists Program 2020-2021 at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (Buenos Aires) and a study program at the Escuela Flora Ars + Natura (Bogota). In 2021, she presented the solo exhibition Todavía las cosas hacían sombra, at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Salta (Argentina), curated by Andrei Fernández. In July 2022, she was artist-in-residence at the Aichi Triennial, Still Alive, directed by Mami Kataoka. Her works are part of public and private collections in Argentina, Chile and Colombia. She lives and works in San Carlos, Salta.
