Claudia Peña Salinas at Simon Preston Gallery

“Inside The Nest” is a group exhibition curated by Embajada. Conditions of post-colonialism, inherited and passed through generations, oral stories, traditions, and the fabrication of objects are invoked by each of the six artists in the show as a means to reclaim their particular cultural heritage. Claudia Peña Salina’s practice is centered on visits to Mexico, where she was born and raised. Through the process of travel, documentation, research and collection of ephemera, she constructs a poetic narrative, which is at the same time personal and political.
