  aXolotl’s Smile is an installation observing and reinterpreting axolotl iconography. More specifically, it underscores the manner in which the trope of axolotl anthropomorphism has been translated across different cultures in the fields of arts, literature and pop culture. Indeed, the axolotl is a larval salamander endemic to the lakes of Mexico and has generated a large genealogy of global objects centered on the theme of ‘crossing’.
