Viviana Cárdenas is interested in producing projects and strategies that serve as platforms for collective and collaborative storytelling. In her work, she set up fictional narratives adapting spaces through language, installation, design, impressions, animation and audio. Her experience includes co-directing an artists' platform for contemporary design and underground culture and leading public educational programs for teenagers and children. Viviama Cárdenas has a degree in visual arts and pedagogy, and a master's degree in Art and Public Space from the National Academy of Arts in Oslo. She has held artist 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 the contrasting cityscapes of Oslo and Medellín - presented by TentHaus (NO) and Exploratorio (CO); “Oslo Syndrome”, a performative walk in collaboration with Critical Walks aiming to start 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. It is currently based in Oslo, having previously lived in Bogota, Colombia.
