  • About the artwork

    (Digital print on “Fine Art Hahnemuler” paper, original bill, cardboard, parpastu, hand-dyed wooden frame with antireflective museum glass).

    “Disasters” is a set of banknotes from various countries of the world in which Carlos Aires includes images extracted from the media. The images show disasters, catastrophic events and wars that took place in the countries the banknotes belong to. The images also define our contemporary iconography and put into question the real and symbolic value of money. In the Disasters series, Aires decodes the value of the banknotes by destroying the banknotes as such. This illegal action cancels their function, rendering them useless. Ultimately, the framing of the banknotes make them become an ironic receptacle of our economic system.

Carlos Aires

Born in: 1974


Translation in progress

Carlos Aires’s work is inspired by personal experience and obsessions; the collision with a contradictory, and sometimes absurd, existence is transposed into his artworks. Aires depicts an uncomfortable reality through beautiful and attractive productions, leading the spectator to a multi-layered understanding to discover a perturbing and politically incorrect dimension beyond appearance. He gives a semantic turn to established icons and values by re-contextualizing ready-made raw materials, employing fragile and yet charged objects (old vinyl records, paper, currencies), and pointing out a critical position towards contemporary neo-liberal society.
