The materials are often the starting point for Tangrand´s artistic processes, and a central part of the form of expression. Through an active inquiry into materials, Tangrands work explores different aspects of life. Tangrand is concerned with how different materials represent a form of hierarchy, and using materials, Tangrands works thematize the present and the past, geography and demography, class differences, economics, handicrafts and traditions.
