InformationThe conceptual works of the Spanish artist Dora García consist of texts, photographs, films, performances, and installations, and often include actors from performance and theater, or even the public. Dora García is interested in challenging the borders between reality and representation, the improvised and the staged, between the artist, the work, and the audience/public. Like a stage or film director, she constructs stories, scenarios, and situations that enable her to experiment, intervene, or distort, and to play with expectations. The result is site-specific spatial ensembles in a constant state of process located beyond current conventions for the presentation of art works. Fiction becomes a means of projecting possible alternative realities in order to question and subvert the rules of the art world and the roles that individuals involved in it play. The artist, who operates worldwide, has taken part in numerous exhibitions including dOCUMENTA(13) in Kassel, where she exhibited her TV experiment Die Klau-Mich-Show: Radicalism in society meets experiment on TV. In this work she employed experimental theater strategies combined with TV formats to communicate radical political and cultural ideas. With her L’Inadeguato, Lo Inadecuado, The Inadequate, created for the Spanish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale, she responded to the invitation to mount a solo exhibition with a cast: an exhibition theater involving 70 people, changing talks, films, debates, rest periods, and performances, which progressively developed in the course of the exhibition. Dora García will be designing a site-specific work for the KUB Arena integrating local co-producers and various materials as well as communication media such as radio or TV.
