María Naidich (Mexico, 1991) is a visual artist currently based in Mexico City. Her artistic work combines research and diverse production practices most of the time resulting into multimedia installations involving image, sculpture, light and sound. Her work address topics related to nostalgia for a place, territory, archeology and nature. With a specific interest in the narratives, objects and colonial structures implied in the construction of an (anthropocentric) imaginary about nature and therefore it´s domestication. Naidich works with phenomena on the edge of the natural and the artificial, questioning the borders around them through fabulations created from the historical, the personal and the magical.
