Damián Ortega


Sold out

Amidst quarantines and lockdowns, Damián Ortega (1967, Mexico City, Mexico) hosted a paranormal masquerade. Invited were a Philanthropic Ogre, a Sweet Rodent, a Freak Brother, Fertility Ghost, Giacometti Dumpling, Acupuncturista, a Tango Singer, and Self Employed Pig, others too: a strange gang fashioned of bottle caps, tangles of string, tortillas, gourd shells, cactus leaves, and coins—whatever Ortega could find around the house. Masks welcomes you to join the ball, gathering one-hundred such disguises alongside essays by Luigi Amara.
