Mario García Torres – Until It Makes Sense

05.07 – 17.08 / 2013
Project art center, Dublin

Until It Makes Sense is an extraordinary encounter with the work of Mario García Torres. This new exhibition for Project Arts Centre will present an expansive range of artworks by Garcia Torres, evolving and developing through the course of the exhibition to create four individually distinct episodes. The work exhibited will include moving image, interactive installation, photography and sculpture.

Between 5 July and 17 August, an exhibition of Mario García Torres’ work titled Until It Makes Sense will unfold in the gallery of Project Arts Centre.

Thought of as a number of episodes, this dynamic revolving project will generate a series of exhibitions. Each chapter will focus on a distinctive element of the artist’s practice, repeating and recombining artworks made by Mario García Torres during the past ten years, staging the exhibition along a dramatic arc.

Beginning with an opening sequence which introduces the sincerity of the practice through gestural forms, the episodes move from a focus on the museum, through a grouping of works exploding the autonomy of the individual, to a quiet but meaningful finale – the artist as labourer towards meaning.

Mario García Torres is an artist firmly planted in the historical garden of conceptual art. His body of work is varied: consisting of both forensically researched artworks which root about in the evidence, myth and remains of conceptual art works, and of simple and sincere gestures that cultivate an equally complex experience of art through their suggestion, potentiality and perhaps even hope.

Underlying the entire exhibition and present throughout all four episodes is 2004’s Until it Makes Sense which will be hand-animated in the gallery on a daily basis, etching into the walls a repetitive, purposeful mantra. Many of the artworks in the exhibition will also embrace the question of self-transformation, by appearing (or re-appearing) in a new form developed specifically for this exhibition in Dublin.
