Agüeros. Masquerade for the End of Time
The exhibition Masquerade for the End of Times puts forward an underworld fauna that comes to life in order to sing a long sacrificial chant. Naomi Rincón Gallardo and her acolytes embody a bat, a scorpion, a snake, a colony of vultures, and a choir of paranormal amphibians: a human, animal, and divine demimonde that rolls in the muck and relishes the dark. This masquerade sets up a mediumistic space for metamorphoses in which a ritual allows communication to occur with the dead and the undead, the human and the more-than-human.
Exhibition produced in partnership with Galerie de l’UQAM.
This exhibition is supported by the Instituto Cultural de México en Montreal, the Consulado General de México en Montreal as well as Artis Mundi, Baltic and La Casa Encendida.
