- Artwork info: Neozapoteca has interest in archaeological contexts and evidences of crafts and activities within the pre-hispanic Zapotec culture, creating a dialogue across time to propose extended narratives from “new” social reinterpretations in the current globalized context.

Camote Toys' work in Oaxaca is the result of a practice based on the research of ancestral heritage, traditions and materials. In this case, he took ceramics as a key trigger in history, a material loaded with time, a measure of advancement in society and a resource that requires natural elements for its transformation.
*Each one of the pieces was made with local clay and techniques from different communities in Oaxaca.
