"Enough time has elapsed since Ako Castuera’s previous solo exhibition at GR2 and her participation at the Giant Robot Biennale 3. Castuera’s new body of work is comprised of challenges to her various influences, including her contemporary view on Pre-Columbian style ceramics. ”This show is about giving shape to the imagination,” says Castuera. “I picture it as an invisible ocean that is around us and inside of us while we go about our daily  routines, aware and unaware of it. This is what it looks like when it comes through me.”
