“The outcome of a gesture, an art gesture, is always unpredictable.” —Mario García Torres
In 1971, Italian artist Alighiero Boetti opened a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan—a creative project he continued until 1977. Thirty-three years later, Mario García Torres travels to Kabul from Mexico to trace the artistic idea of Boetti’s One Hotel, incorporating his own reflections to explore new gestures, parallel histories, overlapping relationships, and the unpredictable nature of art-making. 2012, 35mm film transferred to video, 64 min. Presented with the exhibition Mario García Torres: Illusion Brought Me Here.
