Artist José Luis Torres has recently returned from Alberta where he installed two exhibits; one in Calgary and the other in Lethbridge.
From March 31st to April 4th, the sculptor was invited to the TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary where he realized his installation entitled “Mutations I”. A series of random objects, selected for their plastic qualities where their metaphoric properties occupied the main space in the playful scene. The sculptural vignettes were produced using objects from local community based organizations and from the general public.
From last Arpil 5th to April 10th, the artist created the installation “Mutations II” at Trap\door Artist Run Centre in Lethbridge. In both installations, Torres was looking to echo the social fabric and history of each location. By exchanging with the public, working with the objects left by participants and using artefacts marked by the passing of time in the community, the sculptor was looking to express the local identity in his exhibits and provide the public with an opportunity to have constructive exchanges.
Mutations I will be on exhibit in Calgary until May 3rd while Mutations II is showing until May 31st.
