I explored the National Museum of Mexican Art's Permanent Collection in dialogue with ephemera from my own personal surroundings. By reproducing, manipulating and preserving artifactual materials from history to promotional mementos and images, I attempted to reimagine new and complex cultural representations. The installation serves as a temporal frame that brings into question the role of static historical narratives within the abstract, using this platform as a space to create multiple meanings and imaginaries.
