Materias was a research project and an exhibition of artist's books shown alongside pre-modern and early modern rare books from the collection of the Biblioteca Francisco de Burgoa in Oaxaca, Mexico.
The library is housed in the 16th century ex-convent of Santo Domingo in Oaxaca.
Materias was trans-historical at the core. It reflects my fascination with the matter and subject matter of the codex book form that spans five centuries. From incunabula to present day books.
The ongoing project, How to Peer Through a Wormhole, builds on and expands on Materias
