Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

Carlos Amorales, MX

Mexican artist Carlos Amorales’ drawings are products of a sustained exploration of the interface between human beings and machines. This installation, resembling a fax machine, generated drawings made with charcoal, based on repetitive patterns from magical seals used by Alister Crowley, abstract symbols capable of evoking demons, and which upon its repetition, generate shapes analogous to primal electrical circuits. The resulting print-outs were hung from the ceiling of the exhibition space to form a continuously evolving labyrinth.
