Curator Cory Scozzari gives a tour of the exhibition An Arrival Tale

The Mexican artist Mario García Torres (born 1975) deploys investigative artistic strategies to uncover hidden narratives, embedded in archives, environments and sites, and thereby document the state and limitations of historical records and objects. In his work, he uses a number of narrative techniques including fictional letters, reports, and first-person narration to stage forms of appropriation, re-enactment and repetition, or potentialities thereof. “An Arrival Tale,” an exhibition at Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) Augarten, uses a conceptual gesture to detach works by the artist in the TBA21 collection from their original contexts and descriptions and open them for reinscription as a collection of narratives and artistic experiments.
