Espacio Continuo Gallery

Mario Opazo's luminous alphabet. By Fernando Gómez Echeverri

Mario Opazo

The main art piece from the Mario Opazo exhibition at the Espacio Continuo Gallery (Calle 80 #12-55) requires fire insurance. His friendly bronze monkey does not seem to blow out the candle embedded in the wall.

The fire dazzles him. His eyes do not blink.

The scene led by the monkey could be the beginning of "The planet of the Apes", the introduction to Heraclitus or the Prometheus myth, even the cover for a new edition for "Om the Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin.
