Carlos Amorales : We’ll see how all reverberates
MELBOURNE  •  National Gallery of Victoria International  •  1 August - 3 November 2015
 
 

Mexican artist Carlos Amorales presents a dynamic, interactive sculpture as part of the NGV’s ongoing series of contemporary installations in the foyer of NGV International. Recalling the mid-century modernist forms of Alexander Calder, We’ll see how all reverberates 2012 takes the form of three suspended mobile sculptures balanced by copper Zildjian cymbals. When played Carlos Amorales’ large-scale installation can become either harmonic or chaotic.

Visitors are invited to create and perform experimental percussive compositions through musical gongs, producing sound and movement within the space. Reflecting the artist’s interest in the chance poetics of Dada and the inter-disciplinary happenings of the Fluxus movement, We’ll see how all reverberates invokes a democratic, playful and anarchic impulse, encouraging audience members to become actors and performers.
