Maria Gaspar explores the um of Mexican Art's Permanent Collection in dialogue with ephemera from her own personal surroundings. By reproducing, manipulating and preserving artifactual materials from history to promotional mementos and images, Gaspar attempts to reimagine new and complex realities for a contemporary cultural identity. 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.
