During the CHART Art Fair, Nils Stærk will host a Sunday brunch on September 2nd from 10am – noon.
Nils Stærk is proud to present our first solo exhibition by the Mexican artist Carlos Amorales. The exhibition will contain a series of new three-dimensional paintings with silkscreen ink on wooden panels, an installation of maquetas from the film The Cursed Village and site-specific shadow paintings directly on the walls of the gallery space. Amorales’ work is interdisciplinary where limits and coherences of art and society are explored in relation to language and the individual. In 2017, Amorales represented Mexico at the 57th Venice Biennale with his project Life in The Folds – a project that created new vocabularies, languages and settings through which life can reinvent itself. Amorales develops compositions and works that range from abstraction to conceptualization before converting into a phonetic language system and three-dimensional forms. Music, performance, installation, painting and film are elements used in Amorales artistic practice.
Carlos Amorales is represented in public art collections like; MoMA, New York, Guggenheim Museum New York, La Colección Jumex, Mexico City, Margulies Collection Miami, Museo Tamayo, Mexico City and Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo where he is currently exhibiting with a comprehensive solo until the 19th September, while the installation from the Venice Biennale 2017 will be shown at Röda Sten Konsthall in Sweden from the 9th of June –19th of August.
