Embajada presents Tlalotlicuetlan, the first solo exhibition by Claudia Peña Salinas at the gallery. For the past several years, Peña Salinas has been doing research about Tlaloc and Chalchiuhtlicue, the male and female Aztec deities of rain and fertility, in an ongoing body of composed of sculpture, images, installation, and video. The exhibition is centered on Peña Salinas’s visits to Mexico, where she was born and raised, in search of the original site of the ancient Tlaloc monolith in Coatlinchan, México, which is presently installed in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. Through the process of travel, documentation, research and collection of ephemera, Peña Salinas constructs a poetic narrative, which is at the same time personal and political.
