Dani Tagen

Dani’s practice, seeks to interrogate histories of the places which we occupy. In order to enter into conversation with the flux in use in a particular environment.
Her work directly responds to her surroundings often using everyday experiences and objects to replicate and articulate a particular concept or idea. Exploring the everyday aesthetic of classism.

She looks at the the language of plans and records to excavate the intentionality at the foundation of the spaces her work is shown. Stretching our understandings by questioning the artistic realm and language of commerce, intended to sell the customer an idea via catalogue.

The artist expands the aesthetic choices available to the consumer through her liner illustrations. They divorce utility from the manual pushing this language into a new liminal space. Her plug drawings have multi-layered approach, involving the viewer both physically and seductively through their use of mixed media.
