Black Cloud

I'm reaching into "the archives" to show an exhibit from November 2007, Mexican artist Carlos Morales' show Black Cloud at Yvon Lambert Gallery in Chelsea, New York. The show had an installation of paper moths cut out from black paper covering the gallery walls and ceiling.

It was captivating. The piece plays with dark fantasy and optimism, butterflies taking over your surroundings and leaving you haunted. It is both unsettling and comforting at the same time.

A close-up of the moths is below.

There was also a spooky video, a segment of which i was able to capture on my camera.
