Visual Arts Residency
Benjamín Torres began in the field of sculpture. Later on he directed his work to experimentation in a more open concept in the practice of three-dimensional art. His pieces combine registers ranging from sculpture techniques to collage and décollage, from the creation of original forms to reconstruction (and deconstruction) of previously existing objects. The artist produces three-dimensional pieces and environments in which he uses conceptual strategies such as installation, site-specific work and ephemera as materials. Torres finds his references in the reinterpretation of certain devices in consumer culture and information media. Torres studied Visual Arts at the ENAP (UNAM) and at The Art Student’s League of New York. He is represented in Mexico by Galería Hilario Galguera and currently lives and works in Mexico City.
