The Alternator welcomes Cartón-grafías, a site-specific installation by José Torres, February 1 - March 16, 2013.
Torres' pieces, accumulative, viral and invasive, are often assembled or constructed in situ, using methods that are both aesthetic and functional according to the installation site's architecture. The dialogue between the location and the art directly influences the configuration of his pieces, the choice of materials and their proportion. His work invites visitors and passersby to experience and experiment with the space and the way it is filled in a completely new way. Each piece is anchored in the reflection of the phenomenon of the coexistence with unplanned elements, which change each other and form environments which are in constant evolution.
