Discover Guadalupe Maravilla’s Failing Lightning Bolt at this year’s Noor Riyadh Festival.
The sculpture of a serpent is reminiscent of the artist’s personal mythologies. This being merges with the shape of a lightning bolt and performs two functions – as a sundial during the day and a source of light at night. This enigmatic beast echoes Guadalupe Maravilla’s ancestry and his journey as a healer and survivor of cancer.
The Noor Riyadh Festival, curated by Jérôme Sans, is on view until March 2, 2024.
