Christian Salablanca Díaz's artistic practice is based on personal memories that explore orality to construct stories and narratives that relate to different knowledge based on family traditions and practices. Through this process, the works seek to generate connections between nature and the body, plants and seeds, wind and birds. Salablanca has recently been nominated for the Rolex Mentor & Protegé Arts Initiative 2022-23 and has received the Fondo Concursable Nacional del Museo de Arte Costarricense 2022 award, the Gasworks 2023 Residency Program and is working on two projects for 2023 in CAMPO GARZON, Uruguay as well as 2024 in TABAKALERA, Basque Country.
