Carlos Amorales: Black Cloud
Carlos Amorales' solo-exhibition BLACK CLOUD is currently on view at Kunstmuseum Brandts and on view until 04.08.2024.
"The work Black Cloud by @carlos_amorales_ appears as gloomy and poetic as its title. More than 30,000 black butterflies in laser-cut paper swarm everywhere, in cloud-like clusters - on walls and posts, in windows, down from ceilings, up in corners. Individually, the fine paper insects are beautiful and fragile. In large clusters, they become a potential threat, bringing to mind biblical plagues and something completely uncontrollable. The seductive beauty goes hand in hand with the horrifying. In other words, it is a wildly growing installation that is set free when a completely new version of Black Cloud occupies the art gallery at Kunstmuseum Brandts.
In harmony with the installation, Black Cloud, Carlos Amorales has also created a series of new paintings especially for the exhibition in Kunsthallen at Brandts. The paintings show both organic and structured repetitions of motifs and thus contain a form of encrypted poems." - Kunstmuseum Brandts
