María Naidich´s practice addresses topics related to stones, water, concepts of nature and the dichotomies derived from an anthropocentric understanding of nature, such as the alive/inert and natural/artificial. María combines research and diverse artistic practices engaging fiction and speculation. Her installations involve texts, glass sculpture, ceramics and assemblages of found objects and matter. Her projects allude to archaeological methods and references non western cosmologies in relation to nature.
