press: carlos amorales: words of mouth and hands

If we read the above text carefully, more than a poetic text, it seems to be a kind of incantation with which its author seduces us. Mexican artist Carlos Amorales (1970) has worked with the possibilities and impossibilities of language, and even on other possibilities or ways of understanding what we see, feel and hear. That is to say, the artist experiments from art to inquire about what we think we understand in relation to communication systems as systems of decodable signs, through sounds, gestures, shapes, colors, and not only words. He studied in Amsterdam at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (1996-1997) and at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (1992-1995) and is one of the most internationally prominent Mexican artists today.
On this occasion, the artist has presented for the first time in New York for the kurimanzutto gallery the exhibition Words of Mouth and Hands; an interdisciplinary show composed of a video installation, a set of original scores and works on paper that will be open to the public until July 28, 2023.
