press: in the studio with mariana castillo deball

The Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball works across a wide range of mediums, including installation, performance and sculpture, to explore the ways in which objects shape our identity and history. Her practice is rooted in research and often involves collaboration with ethnographic collections, libraries and archives. Her most recent installation, ‘Roman Rubbish’, comprises ceramic sculptures, a textile curtain and a wax wall with inscriptions. A commission for Bloomberg SPACE at the London Mithraeum, where it is on view until 14 January 2023, the work has been inspired by the 14,000 Roman artefacts that were discovered on the site of Bloomberg’s European headquarters during archaeological excavations in 2012.
