Coming soon: Mariana Castillo Deball
4 Aug 2022 – 14 Jan 2023
Located on the ground floor of the London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE aims to showcase the best in contemporary art whilst bringing fresh perspectives to the history of this unique site.
Our latest commission is Roman Rubbish by Berlin-based Mexican artist, Mariana Castillo Deball.
Castillo Deball’s composition is inspired by the 14,000 Roman artefacts discovered on the site of Bloomberg’s European headquarters during the 2012 – 2014 archaeological excavations. The installation comprises towering pillars of ceramic sculptures, an elegant textile curtain and a wax feature wall with delicate inscriptions, highlighting the variety of objects left behind by the City of London’s predecessors.

b. 1975, Mexico City
Deball’s interest in the mathematical laws and geometrical structures present in landscape and throughout the organic universe have contributed to a unique body of work in which elements of science and nature are synthesized into sculptural objects. Her work is currently part of the Mexico Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. She lives and works in Berlin.
A series of contemporary art commissions responding to the site’s rich archaeological history.
