Débora Delmar’s work investigates the effects of globalisation on everyday life in relation to consumer culture and society. She is particularly focused on the societal consequences, such as issues of class, cultural hegemony and gentrification. This is born from the omnipresent influence of the United States in Mexico, and in the wider world. Her work examines the contextual value of goods, analyzing their production, distribution, consumption and disposal. Within her installations Delmar references corporate architecture, non-places and multinational chains that utilize homogenized minimalist aesthetics. These are commonly composed of a variety of media ranging from photographic prints or modified appropriated objects, to commissioned hand painted signs and carved sculptures. She often also incorporates immaterial components within exhibitions such as sound, scent and situations.
