The mayan language… my reflexion
Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu

The fusion of cultures has given like result a wealth in the religious beliefs of present Mexico. Nevertheless, some no longer are so evident in its symbolic meaning . The Mexican visual artist Claudia Valdés, resident in Finland, has been inspired by these referring subjects to the Mexican cultural mestization, to arm her exhibition, that consists of an installation and 10 works made in different techniques of engraving.

“A fundamental part of my work has been inspired by some concepts of the Mayan philosophy as sources of motivation. The constant use of linguístic elements in this exhibition is comparitive from my experience in differnet cultures and languages. In the last 6 years in which I have lived in Finland, I have been motivated to investigate my cultural roots and the ones from other counties, with which I have found multiple relations in the philosophies that the natives of the world maintain with the nature. Thus, I have extended my vision and reinforced my initial motivations, since these philosophies have diverse points of convergence. For that reason, the intention of my work is to make of the art a source to divinize the natural like life as well as the origin of the human been. I´m trying to communicate to the spectator that the nature is part of us based on the relation man-nature-spirituality, remembering always the ancestral philosophies”.
