Nombrar el agua (Naming water) is an art installation composed by one video and 22 clay 3d printed pieces which are the result of the materialization of the sound of the word water in extinct languages. They are part of the “En esta vida hay otra vida” exposition, on view until 29th January 2022 in Madrid.

Naming things is recognizing their existence and placing them in the in the world. The artwork takes a tradition of the indigenous community of the Tehuacán Valley in Puebla as a starting point. One night a year is spent naming everything to maintain their existence. As an act of resistance, Candiani turns pictures into sound and sound in sculptures, as if with this transformation they weren’t going to disappear.

Tania Candiani’s work (Ciudad de México, 1974) is moved by her interest in the complex intersection between phonetic, graphic, linguistic, symbolic, and technologic languages. She has worked with different narratives based on association, rearranging, mixing and playing with connections between technology, knowledge and though.

Sculptures are made from the sound wave emitted from reciting the 22 words of this list.

Xongó, yanhis, nondó, geew, nis, nisyu, nisgeew, nis law geel, nis bala’w, nis biliás, beel ja’, ja, vo’, uk’um, ndâsítìnká, íntâ, atoyac, atl, matha, iya, ndifa, ndaná.
