Mara Fernanda Cardoso Im in Awe with the Small Artist Interview Tate


Meet María Fernanda Cardoso, a Colombian artist based in Sydney, Australia.

Cardoso creates art that explores nature and its links to culture and science. ‘For me, art is freedom, and of course it’s informed by the natural world’, says the artist.

One of the artist’s best-known works is ‘The Cardoso Flea Circus’ (1994-2000), a six-year series of performances and installations in which Cardoso trained fleas to perform tasks and surprising feats of strength.

In this film we visit Cardoso’s home and studio to discover more about her work.
