The individual exhibition, CAREFUL HANDS by Amargo, will open on November 11, from 6 pm to 8.30 pm.
The exhibition will remain open until December 3 and the admission is free.

Careful Hands by Amargo is an exhibition that tells us about a frozen moment in time. A moment when we notice a little animal that has just landed on our hand. That moment when our world, urgency and restlessness are suspended, and our eyes, in milliseconds, become a macro lens trying to focus on something tiny.

Then the opportunity arises to reflect on the delicate and pure existence of a non-human being that hovers in our delicate hands.
Amargo transports this moment to the illustration in “zine” format, the main piece of this exhibition, but from the perspective of the animal. A manifesto from animals to humans, demanding more attention and gentle walks through the fingers of the hand.
Not wanting to reveal more, Amargo‘s very unique way of illustrating, will find here, on her first solo exhibition, various types of media, between a lot of spray and acrylic paint.
