Carlos Amorales - La serpiente de los días

For this exhibition, commissioned by Museo Kaluz, Carlos Amorales presents a new installation created by the repetition of aluminum and ceramic masks strung together hundreds of times forming a mythological snake (that functions as a large percussion instrument, a metallophone). This snake/instrument floats on top of a concentration of ceramic masks distributed on the floor. This installation of mythological dimensions is inspired by the experience of the coronavirus pandemic assuming it as a long moment of uncertainty that has affected us emotionally, in ways that we haven’t yet been able to grasp. La serpiente de los días is a monument dedicated to the horror that we have been experiencing as a society.
