Produced on the occasion of multimedia artist Carlos Amorales' (born 1970) project for the Mexican pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, this book compiles an encrypted alphabet that Amorales uses to tell the story of an immigrant lynching in Mexico. Carlos Amorales (Mexico, 1970) proposes Life in the folds, retaking the book of Henri Michaux (Namur, Belgium, 1899 - Paris, 1984) and working extradisciplinarily, crossing different languages and proposing an investigation on the translation of supports through invention Free of new codes. What I would take as a starting point, that is, as a possible sign to combine, is a collection of ocarinas. Amorales invents an encrypted language, as if it were possible "graphic scores", mixed to form writings, narratives, calligraphies, systems.
