Loteria: La Suerte Que Habla (Luck Talks)
Loteria: La Suerte Que Habla (Luck Talks) is a game and exhibition inspired by the traditional Mexican game of La Loteria Mexicana. A game similar to bingo, but played with a deck of cards instead of numbers. Each card bears an image that evokes a popular Mexican event, artifact, individual, or other cultural symbol. Loteria: La Suerte Que Habla (Luck Talks) features entirely new images that represents my views of my native land; they celebrate and denounce the current social, political and cultural state of Mexico.
The cards are accompanied by coplas (riddles) written by Toronto-based Mexican-Canadian writer Martha Bátiz.
