Down the Rabbit Hole explores the symbolic language of images from a Mexican feminist perspective. Symbolic language has the ability to express abstract ideas that are otherwise difficult to translate in direct, analytical speech or text. This language of images is felt more so than it is heard, and honors the realm of instinct, dreams, and intuition.

In this exhibition, I present three bodies of work that investigate this symbolic language through the lens of archetypes, dreams, and fairy tales. This exhibition has been shown in Paris in 2018, and has now come to SPARC. Down the Rabbit Hole continues to grow as new participants step forward to tell their story. I invite you to participate in this language of images and insert yourself into the world of our untold narratives.
