Florencia Sadir

  • Born 1991 in San Miguel de Tucumán (Tucumán), Argentina.
  • Based in Cafayate (Salta), Argentina.

Florencia Sadir grew up in Cafayate (Salta Province), Argentina. She is studying Fine Arts at the National University of Tucumán (Argentina). She completed the 2020 / 21 Artists Program at the University Torcuato Di Tella (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and a study program at the Flora Ars + Natura School (Bogotá, Colombia).

Florencia’s work is grounded in a dialogue with her homeland (Valles Calchaquíes) where she currently lives and works, about inherited knowledge and learning in community. Her installations, sculptures and drawings are composed with natural materials, from clay in different states for construction to the use of basketry woven with vegetable fibers to create objects that accentuate their dysfunctionality. Her works invite the audience to reflect on how production, work and consumption times have been decoupled from life cycles. Sadirʼs art work proposes a correction of the false dissociation between man and nature. Her works form part of numerous public and private collections in Argentina, Chile and Colombia.
