Using a sewing template for a lucha libre mask, Victor Maldonado presents three variations on the mask in surprising scales and materials. By disrupting the function and symbology of the mask, Maldonado redirects it toward a grappling with themes of identity, gender, social spaces, labor, and colonization, and blurs the distinction between map and template.
