A swarm of black paper moths in different sizes occupying the entire walls and ceilings of four galleries of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
Each moth was cut with a laser, folded by hand and then glued onto surfaces.
The visual effect is amazing! Instagram worthy as the youngsters say. 😉
This exhibition is part of:
THE FACTORY Exhibition — 23 Nov 2019 until 17 May 2020
It includes spatial works, installations, paintings, drawings, videos, prints, textiles, animations, and sound works.
The multidisciplinary artist, Carlos Amorales, is Mexico’s most important contemporary artists from the 1990s to the present day.
He began his career in Amsterdam. He studied at Gerrit Rietveld Academie from 1992 to 1995 and at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten from 1996 to 1997. Amorales return to Mexico City in 2004 and set up his own studio.
Not my usual dose of museums, but occasionally, such modern and contemporary art museum helps tickle my mind. 😉
