Claudia Martínez Garay’s work investigates the journey that objects undertake from the moment of their origin, through the progression of contexts and destinations that they inhabit, suggesting that the information accrued in these transitory spaces holds value and power. Martínez Garay looks to the pre-Columbian cultures of South America, with a focus on representing and interpreting the visual language of Incan ceremonial traditions.
