mariana castillo deball - amarantus unam

"Amarantus" is the first retrospective in Mexico of the work of Mariana Castillo Deball, who, over the past twenty years, has created a vast body of work in the space between science, narrative, fiction and the visual arts, as well as their relationship with the ways in which Mexico’s precolonial history has been appropriated and investigated at different times.

The artist has addressed the way in which knowledge and culture are produced, represented and disseminated. With a kaleidoscopic approach to these research interests, Castillo Deball has explored the fields of archaeology, science, literature and technology and has collaborated with museums and other institutions outside the field of contemporary art.
