Working in sculpture, printmaking, photography, and installation, Mariana Castillo Deball (b. 1975, Mexico City, Mexico) considers the ways historical artifacts and material culture are recorded, appropriated, and circulated. In a number of her past works, the artist has shed light on pre-Hispanic and early colonial indigenous narratives to consider their legacies within Mexican identity as well as the transformations engendered by colonial encounters.
