DESCRIPTION

aXolotl’s Smile is an installation inspired by the creature axolotl. The work draws upon Julio Cortazar’s short story Axolotl (1952), a Kafkian narrative about a man that transforms into an axolotl. The axolotl is a neotenic salamander endemic to the lakes of Mexico with the unique capacity to regrow lost limbs and remain in a state of eternal youth.
