Ocaso is the last individual show of Nicolas Lama, Peruvian artist who lives in Belgium. For this new project, Lamas uses a series of meetings and unstable relationships between elements from different contexts, which interact within a space of a gallery under a not established parameters. Ocaso proposes an ontological review to our present under a dark and quiet perspective, where light seems to be diluted behind a horizon which is about to disappear.
