Mariana Castillo Deball (b. 1975, Mexico City) lives in Berlin, Germany. Castillo Deball works in installation, sculpture, photography and drawing, exploring the ideologically constructed conditions under which artefacts appear in today’s culture. She takes on a kaleidoscopic approach to her work, culling information from various disciplines such as archaeology and science, and through research and collaboration, creating works that arise from the collision and recombination of these different languages.
