Carlos Amorales

b. 1970, Mexico City | lives and works in Mexico City

Carlos Amorales’s practice encompasses animation, drawing, installation, performance, and video; he also collaborates with animators, composers, designers, musicians—and wrestlers. Amorales’s 2012 interactive installation, We’ll See How Everything Reverberates (Ya veremos como todo reverbera) is a cascade of curved steel rods with cymbals hanging from their ends. Its linearity and rhythm, gentle movement and delicate balance evoke the mobile sculptures of Alexander Calder. When the work is on view, exhibition visitors are invited to play the forms.
