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.
