Prolific Mexican video artist Ximena Cuevas continually produces biting and sardonic short works which interrogate and subvert states of normalcy. Part of the Dormimundo series, Cama is fascinated with the life of an inanimate object steeped in the values of family and tradition. A 'decent' marriage bed is overlaid with its sexual history, the furniture itself becoming voyeur and participant in a seamy domestic underworld.
