Celeste Jaime • Llueve adentro (It Rains Inside), 2017 Linocut
The umbrella, object that protects from rain and sun, turns against its carrier attracting a calamity if it is opened in the interior of a house. I mix this superstition with the “throw the salt”, a popular saying in Mexico concerning the attraction of bad luck or frustrated plans. Thus, the character in the play after opening the umbrella inside home, is a victim of salt rain and misfortunes to come.
