Join us for the Koffler Gallery’s Summer 2018 Opening Reception, José Luis Torres: Question d’adaptation
Argentinian born, Québec based artist José Luis Torres works with sculpture, installation and public intervention, appropriating spaces and hijacking meaning through simple actions that subvert everyday materials and the conventions of handicraft. Influenced by his experience of displacement, Torres’ creative explorations focus on space and place, generating whimsical artworks where spontaneity and accumulation recur in connection to ideas of economy, survival, labour and the ready-made.
