Lorena Mal (b.1986, Mexico city)
Mal's work combines mediums such as sound, video, scultpure, photography and performance, focusing on sound and vision as tools of investigation in search of questioning systems of knowledge that are the foundations of lineal and authoritarian perceptions of History and the political, making them visible and even unleashing intern contradictions within their power mechanisms. -Andrea Acira, curator and researcher.
