Espais C residency

September 2023 - June 2024

Ricardo Cárdenas. Mexico City, 1981.

His work seeks to create spaces for the re-signification of poetic gestures based on a political reading of the context. He regularly works in direct relation to the specific site and in complicity with the community where and with whom he develops it, using strategies between sound, text and image.

He is an undisciplined artist in terms of forms and means of production. He develops his work flexibly through a research practice that seeks to transcend the constrained structures of time and logic common to contemporary artistic practice.

In his work, he develops strategies that emphasise and question the homogeneity of social narratives, situating projects from narratives that emphasise the power of micro-histories as forms of opposition to hegemonic narratives that provide spaces for subjective expression and stimulate the development of other forms of political imagination.

He has a degree in Fine Arts from the Faculty of Art and Design (UNAM) and studied in the SOMA training programme (Generation 2015) in Mexico; he is also a graduate of the MACBA Independent Studies Programme 2017.

He was awarded the BCN Producció 22-23 grant with the project: A la deriva. Contranarrativas emocionales de la inmigración. He has been selected in the XVII Biennial of Photography of the Image Centre and winner of the Casa Vecina Cultural Residency Grant 2016. He has shown his work in different spaces in Mexico, USA, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Holland. Since 2018 he has been collaborating with the Grup de Treball de Ràdio Web MACBA.
