Caroline Achaintre


The exhibition Escáner, by Caroline Achaintre, gathers a series of works created in response to the collection of the Museo Casa del Alabado. Achaintre sees the pre-Columbian pieces as recorders of memories and histories, which she has translated, through her own manual labour, into a series of ceramic masks and a tapestry. Even though they appear to be masks, the resulting pieces are for Achaintre characters that work as receptors for the imagination of whoever encounters them.
