Candice Tarnowski is an artist and art conservator based in Montréal. She holds a MFA in Sculpture from Concordia University (2007), a BFA in Fibres from the Alberta College of Art & Design (1999), and a diploma in Cultural Resource Management from the University of Victoria (2009). Candice has set up homes and participated in residencies in North Carolina, Holland, Hungary, the Maritimes, and the sub-Arctic. She makes objects, photographs, drawings, and installations that are based in concerns with the ‘orderly’ and openness/chaos. Her work is an articulation of being/living as art -cooking, eating, making, building- the deliberation of a task, an awareness of what surrounds us, and taking nothing for granted.
