Moore Contemporary presents La Maruja – a major solo show by Latinx artist Pilar Mata Dupont. Comprising a series of six photographs and a single-channel video, the body of work interrogates the historical and cultural mythos of the feminine both within Mata Dupont’s ancestry and across disparate cultures. This exhibition marks Mata Dupont’s second solo exhibition at Moore Contemporary.

Six large-scale, vividly-coloured photographs depict a totemic feminine figure, a quasi-historical reconstruction of Mata Dupont’s own great-great-grandmother, María Cristina, whose death under mysterious circumstances provides the conceptual springboard for La Maruja. In an accompanying single-channel video, Mata Dupont digs into her family history, weaving together family interviews about María Cristina, and found references to her in archival tapes of interviews previously made by her father.

Opening night: 23rd September, 6-8pm.
