Thanks

Explanation:
Caño would make sense, the installation needs a firm frame for its support.

agree  Robert Carter: Definitely a typo or a way of spelling it when you don't have an ñ key. Perhaps "tube" instead of pipe?

Noelia Correa, Love and Fear , 2019, folded sheet, led circuit, acrylic, embroidered tulle, silk crepe and square ***canio***, 290 x 150 x 70 cm.

Noelia Correa, meanwhile, installed Love and Fear, words that are read on a tin sign illuminated by a led circuit. The letters shine behind an embroidered tulle curtain, with red silk crepe trim, like a narrow curtain that remains closed. A thorough sewing job coexists with industrial devices such as advertising signage and thus combines materials of different order. “The work is part of a series of pieces in a similar format, where the artist tries to think about her relationship with art, with the work of an artist and, from that place, works with the word and its expansive effect.
