Becoming Chac Mool 2018

Artists Harold Offeh and Veronica Cordova de la Rosa invited children and their families to create costumes inspired by Chac Mool, a reclining sculpture found on the top of Mexican temples and pyramids. 

Serpentine Gallery, London. 

Artists Harold Offeh and Veronica Cordova de la Rosa invited children and their families to create costumes inspired by Chac Mool, a reclining sculpture found on the top of Mexican temples and pyramids. 

Drawing on the history of Mayan and Aztec sculpture and Cordova de la Rosa and Offeh’s performance practices, families transformed into a version of Chac Mool, a figure associated with water, rain and lightning. Using a range of reflective materials families created body adornments echoing the mirrored surfaces and pool in Escobedo’s Pavilion, and posed, played and performed in and around the structure. This workshop was programmed in parallel with the 2018 Serpentine Pavilion designed by Frida Escobedo.
