“The area comprising the states of northern Mexico and southern United States is the space in which the exhibition Otros días [Other Days] by Mario García Torres is situated. This exhibition explores and distorts this place in the artist’s personal imaginary, taking it both as a location and as a vehicle for the possibility of carrying out artistic gestures.
Composed from records of a variety of strategies that give shape to an elliptical vision of the territory, this exhibition attempts to activate memory and time, triggering other images that live within the spectator, in whom reality is rethought. The work is not what is there, but rather what it reflects, and what the act forgets and omits.” (exhibition text).
