Paloma Ayala


Paloma Ayala (b.1980, Matamoros, Mexico) is a visual artist interested in exploring and empowering the relationship between domestic living strategies and political contexts. She is a diaspora mother and a mestiza daughter whose work addresses historical or social issues that impact the ecology. Paloma’s projects nourish visions of connection between human and more-than-human spheres, they dream of emancipation from marginalizing dominant structures, and emphasize practices of care across different topographies and borders. Her favorite spaces to work range from kitchen to river shore, from international crossing bridge to agricultural land, from community meeting to aquelarre. Her work takes the form of publications, videos, installations, reading/cooking sessions, and zine workshops directed to different public, including humans outside of cultural institutions.
