Amber Guests

2015

Inside a small room of an abandoned hotel situated at the downtown of Rio de Janeiro, Tunga conceives and install the work "Amber Guests". Multiple steel wires coming from different points of the walls and ceiling orientate the viewer's eyes to elements displaced in suspension. A long bronze spoon plated with silver nitrate, a crystal bottle filled with a yellow odorous ambar essence, a dark grey translucent quartz crystal, some liquid dropping apparatus and a blackish meteorite are all suspended by entangled wire riggings, turning the room an almost-impenetrable site. Sea pearls of light roseate color are scattered all over the room and meteorite's slits.

Two iron tripods, which sizes are proportional to small stools, bring to the room more of the iron matter along the wires and meteorite. The room is fully occupied but the exterior light that comes into the room from a wide window, allows a sort of transparency to the space, the magic of fourth wall.

The installation that displays in the same space a meteorite next to a quartz crystal and sea pearls, it's actually a tree. We smell the ambar essence that runs from the large metal spoon to the crystal, from the crystal to the meteorite, from the meteorite to the wooden floor, but we cannot see this tree. The invisible is here offered. The tree that connects sky to earth is incensed by ambar and cigar smoke.

Two girls are inside this room. They are the ones that drop the liquid essence into the large spoon. They are the ones that smoke the cigars and the remembrance of this tree leaves. They are the only ones, who could seal this bond between visible and invisible.

The day after this event with the performers, by invitation of the great tree, they also become invisible.
