Viviana Cárdenas

Visual Artist

Viviana Cárdenas is interested in producing projects and strategies that serve as platforms for collective and collaborative fabulation. In her work, she creates fictional narratives adapting spaces through language, installation, drawing, prints, animation and audio. Her experience includes co-directing an artists platform for contemporary design and underground culture and leading public educational programs for teens and children. Viviama Cárdenas has a degree in fine arts and pedagogy, and a master's degree in Art and Public Space from the National Academy of Arts in Oslo. She has already held artistic residencies at the Banff Centre, Ruangrupa, [R.A.T] and Casa Tres Patios. Some of her recent projects include TransAtlantic Sci-Fi, a laboratory that blends contrasting urban landscapes of Oslo and Medellín - presented by TentHaus (NO) and Exploratorio (CO); “Oslo Syndrome”, a performative walk in collaboration with Critical Walks with the aim of starting a conversation about migration, impermanence, inequality and destiny; and “Metonymy Garden”, a collaboration with Ana Brotas that seeks to investigate nature and landscapes as a starting point for fictional fabrication. She is currently based in Oslo, having previously lived in Bogotá, Colombia.
