Born in Colombia and based in Florida, Tata Navia actually has a background in dentistry. Her current Toronto exhibition, Personae, focuses on chairs, alone or in groups, that take on the role of the characters in Navia’s narratives. The artist plays constantly with various arrangements and the musical chairs that result are delightful pieces set on stages of various colours. Navia spotlights the chairs and their shadows as they dance, float, congregate, exclude, lead, follow, meet, mount, balance, scatter, sulk and so much more…
Artist: Tata Navia
Personae continues at the Odon Wagner Gallery in Toronto through November 11.
