Mexico City

Artist Statement

Materialized through architectural castings, replicas and representations of imagined constructions of ‘what could have been’, my work analyses elements of colonial architecture that are inscribed in Latin American landscape. It examines structures of power through the creation of fictional scenarios, using archival material, castings, 3D models and historical accounts as raw material. The intention behind this process is to suggest new possibilities and alternative narratives to official histories.
