Mariana Castillo Deball Born in México City, 1975. Lives in Amsterdam and Berlin. Mariana participated at the dOCUMENTA (13). Her work examines historical fragments, documents, and objects in a new light. She takes on the role of amateur archaeologist as she works with found objects and fragments that she reproduced, damaged or falsified; even though it is clear that her view is not obscured by a reverence for ancient cultures. Rather she analyses the role of objects and the media for their storage as tools of modern cultural production to revitalize the aura of these objects: I’m interested less in the meaning of the artefacts than in the way people treat them, how they are manipulated.
