As part of the Year of Mexico in the UK and the UK in Mexico in 2015 Turner Contemporary is presenting Mexican artist Carlos Amorales' (born 1970, Mexico City) We Will See How Everything Reverberates (2012) in our Sunley Gallery.

The sculpture is made of suspended cymbals based on the organic shapes created by the influential twentieth-century sculptor Alexander Calder (1898 –1976). In Calder’s delicately balanced mobile sculptures, cut-out shapes recalling natural forms were moved by air currents in the room. In Amorales’ installation, over 30 different cymbals are hung in the space, creating a large-scale mobile as well as a huge musical instrument.

Come and play the cymbals in a work that exists both in silence and harmony, as well as chaos and noise, in our spectacular Sunley Gallery with double height windows overlooking the North Sea.

Carlos Amorales’ work in film and video, painting, drawing, sculpture and performance examines contemporary Mexican culture and values. His earlier works were based on his search for identity and often used the idea of the mask. In 2003 his famous series of performances by masked Mexican wrestlers, Amorales vs Amorales (Challenge 203) was performed at Tate Modern, the Pompidou Centre and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
This installation is shown for the first time in the UK as part of The Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom in 2015.
