Bio:

Dani Tagen is a contemporary artist interested in the everyday-life. She works in various medium including installations, prints, performance and site-specific. She holds a Master in Contemporary Art and Teaching from Goldsmiths University London. She was awarded the CAPES scholarship from the Brazilian Ministry of Education to study photography at City of Westminster College, London.

Her work explores concepts relating to everyday life – a process that attempts to challenge what is worth noticing. The materials she uses are very important to her; they have to maintain a dialogue with her research so she is drawn to use any media she feels fits the purpose. She considers that the medium is just a tool therefore, she does not constrain herself in using any particular technique.
