Iron becomes delicate and airy and subjective words turn into concrete truths at the able hands of Portuguese sculptor Rui Chafes in his show at the Museu de Arte Moderna. Widely considered one of the country's most talented sculptors, his dark creations in black iron and steel are permeated with an unexpected, ethereal softness, full of organic curves and tender messages. Inspired by the writings of novelist Beckett and philosopher Nietzsche, Chafes' work often embodies the themes the writers famously explored in years past: loneliness, theft, abandonment and destruction. 

In Carne Misteriosa, carioca art connoisseurs will get a chance to see 87 of the Chafes' masterpieces set across seven rooms. Comprised of sculptures both monumental and small, as well as a video of the artist at work, the collection offers audiences a thorough introduction into the murky world of a truly talented sculptor.
