Replaying Life's Tape

Mariana Castillo Deball - Replaying Life\'s Tape
This catalogue documents a research and exhibition project stemming from a fieldwork conducted by the artist on a palaeontological site in South Australia.
Replaying Life's Tape explores a cycle of recent projects by the Berlin and Mexico City based artist Mariana Castillo Deball that take fossils and evolutionary trees as their subject matter, and departs from a research trip that she made to a significant fossil site in the Ediacara Hills of South Australia in 2018.
“Replaying Life's Tape” is also the first Australian exhibition of Mariana Castillo Deball at the Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (5 Oct – 7 Dec 2019). In this solo show, Castillo Deball presents a material and virtual recreation of the paleoecology of the Ediacaran Period, combining objects, sculptural display systems and viewing technologies to consider the relationships between site, time and history.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, from October 5 to December 7, 2019.
Born 1975 in Mexico City, Mariana Castillo Deball lives and works in Berlin and Amsterdam.
