Opening soon | New exhibition by José Damasceno

(São Paulo, Brazil) “On the Object of 8th Degree”, the artist will be displaying his most recent installation, that carries the name of the show, made with obsidian stone which Damasceno found of interest in his travels to Guadalajara, Mexico. It is a sort of volcanic glass, created by the rapid solidification of magma; found widely in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, it was used as a mirror as well as a weapon, and was frequently associated to occultism and Aztec rituals.
