día de muertos, mexico city, mexico
A series of photographs documenting día de muertos celebrations in Mexico City, 2022.
My new video art piece Algún día caerá is currently featured as a video installation in the screening integrated in the Lumbung Lounge installation, a project by Guerilla Architects and Along the Lines, at the Stellwerk Galerie, in Kulturbahnhof, Kassel, Germany from July 22nd through July 30th, in parallel to documenta fifteen. Below are some images from the exhibition.
“Through the installation Lumbung Lounge, the exhibition space of the Stellwerk Galerie in the Kulturbahnhof in Kassel will be brought back to its original state: a public waiting room. Via the installation work by Along the Lines and Guerilla Architects, the public is invited to engage with the topic of waiting as a collective moment. Can a collectively used space inspire experimentation with new forms of togetherness?”
