ŒUVRE PERMANENTE
Mario Garcia Torres

Untitled (Missing Piece)

2005
Intervention in the listed works,
variable dimensions, edition 1/3

How can one answer the eternal questions concerning time, truth, dematerialization, and reinterpretation of works of art?
Mario Garcia Torres belongs to the tradition of conceptual and neo-conceptual artists, but he reinterprets their discourse and foundations with an ironic distance which gives his work its pertinence and poignancy.
The present intervention, which takes the form of a simple line drawn across the list of exhibited work, allows the artist to return to the basics. His “Missing Piece” is one which does not need material form, but which is a site of potential coexistence of all past, present, and future works. The one sought after and desired, the one missing from the whole collection: the masterpiece?

Mario Garcia Torres
Born in 1975 in Mexico City, Mexico. Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
