What does an exploding room actually look like? Havana-based artists Dagoberto Rodriguez and Marco Castillo, collaboratively known as Los Carpinteros, have constructed an installation depicting a room amidst an explosion. The imaginary blast rips through walls and furniture, leaving broken sculptures and debris suspended in the air. It's as if time has stood still. Spectators of the exhibit are given the unique opportunity to view the effects and damage of an exploding room from all angles.

Rodriguez and Castillo's work has been exhibited across the world from the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York to the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. They are currently presenting a collection of their works in their first solo exhibition in a Spanish museum at Es Baluard in Palma de Mallorca, on the Spanish Balearic islands.
