Mario Garcia Torres at Neugerriemschneider, Berlin/Mexico - Catalogue
The Strange Things My Eyes See is a conceptual framework that GarciÌa Torres developed for the now abandoned Centro de MeditacioÌn in Santa MariÌa AhuacatitlaÌn, Mexico, prompting the gallery to open a satellite space there. Upon entering the derelict space, visitors encountered a scene with a number of ob- jects, elements that had originally been part of the building itself, transformed into bronze â€“ among them a wooden beam, onyx slabs, a wooden step, parquet slats and a lamp. A selection of these objects are now on view in Berlin, alongside the canvas impressions of dried corn plants that GarciÌa Torres discovered in one of the Centroâ€™s empty spaces. Using the unique structure as its context, this experiment constituted a subtle intervention that suspended notions of perception and the laws of physics.
