Carlos Amorales: The man who did all things forbidden
Exploring questions of concealment and identity, Carlos Amorales works with film, drawing, painting and performance. At Art Exchange we focus on his latest film which follows the contradictory impulses of a man who did all things forbidden. Stylistically strikingly, with strong visual imagery and use of sound, as much is implied as said in this captivating film.
Commissioned for Berlin Biennial 8 in 2014, The Man Who Did All Things Forbidden will be shown for the first time in the UK at Art Exchange.
Carlos Amorales is a Mexican artist who has exhibited international, including MUCA in Mexico City, Manifesta 9, Berlin Biennial 8, Tate Modern and Liverpool Biennial, to name a few.
