Lujan Candria is a multidisciplinary artist who uses a wide array of media, such as painting, objects, photography, sound and video to create introspective work of art. She plays with lights and shadows to talk about reminiscences, memory and oblivion. Candria often uses the repetition and juxtaposition of a variety of images all grouped together with subtle variations of light to create intimate narratives and condensed poetics loaded with nostalgia.
Candria has presented solo exhibitions at international galleries and institutions including Artium Art Gallery Miami, O Cinema, Mock Gallery, Angel Guido Art Project, ThisIsNotAGallery, Centro Cultural Borges, Espacio Urania Gesso and Centro Cultural Recoleta Buenos Aires.
