Maria Taniguchi

Maria Taniguchi’s paintings and videos draw attention to acts of composing, constructing, and framing. Her ongoing series Untitled (Brick Paintings), which the artist paints brick by brick, emphasize the physical accumulation of individual time while eschewing the immediate cultural references often ascribed to artists from Asia. 

Maria Taniguchi (b.1981, Dumaguete City) lives and works in Manila, Philippines. She is the winner of the 2015 Hugo Boss Asian Art Award. She will be participating the Gwangju Biennale in September 2018 and she is currently part of the Biennale of Sydney, Australia. Selected recent projects include Musée national d’art moderne – Centre Pompidou, Paris; 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisban; New Sensorium, ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologien, Karlsruhe; HIWAR: Conversations in Amman, Amman; and Don’t You Know Who I Am? Art After Identity Politics, Museum of Contemporary Art (MHKA), Antwerp.
