Face to face with death

Carlos Aires

Over 280 different silhouettes, among smaller ones in the form of flies and small insects, are placed on a support in the shape of an unfolded world map. The blue color of these silhouettes comes from the banknotes from which they have been cut out: Current 5 Chinese yuan bills. With this, the artist points out the preponderance of economic power in international relations, also alluding to the coronavirus crisis.
