Mariana Castillo Deball

The noticed one, confusing itself with the many

Mariana Castillo Deball (b. 1975, Mexico City, Mexico) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. The noticed one, confusing itself with the many consists of ten fragments of Aztec and Maya archaeological sculptures brought to the High Line in a procession and installed on a metal structure that resembles museum storage systems. The Plinth itself is embedded with hundreds of ceramic fragments common to archaeological digs.

Tomilson Hill, The Holly Peterson Foundation, Annie Hubbard, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Donald R. Mullen, Jr., Miyoung Lee and Neil Simpkins, Doug Oliver, Mario J. Palumbo, Jr., Susan Scherr, Susan Viniar, and Anonymous.
