Débora Delmar

Débora Delmar lives and works between London, UK and Mexico City, MX. She completed the Postgraduate Programme at the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2019.

Delmar’s work investigates the effects of globalisation on everyday life in relation to consumer culture and society, particularly focusing on issues such as gentrification, class struggle and cultural hegemony. This is borne from the omnipresent influence of the United States in Mexico, and in the wider world.

In her installations Delmar frequently references minimalist corporate architecture, non-places and multinational chain’s aesthetics. The artist appropriates the minimalist design that characterises  corporate spaces. These spaces of consumption have a sanitised and homogenised look which allows for constant surveillance.
