Multichannel video projections onto parasitic, bomb-like sculptures activate MediaNoche’s architecture. Images of mass rallies and marching soldiers are juxtaposed to a man’s body, floating in dark, indeterminate waters. The sculptures act as bodies themselves, simultaneously inhabiting the physical space of the gallery and the projections of the sea, a dark field of liquid that alludes to contamination or oil. It should be noted that the English translation of Aguasmalas also references the private military company Blackwater, contracted by the US government to provide security services in Iraq.
