Jorge García (Toledo, 1977)

Multidisciplinary plastic artist, lives and works in Madrid. His work has almost always been centred on sculpture and installation, leading him to consider “the object” in all its dimensions, from the most exaggerated fetishism, to the most interpretative charge, also including the most critical and ironic dimension.

His proposals currently explore new concerns formally and conceptually, addressing a multi-level, or rather fractal, narrative between the individual, art, social structures and the historical context, emphasising the impact that power structures have on the processes of relating to oneself and the environment.

This change or these new conceptual concerns have led him to work with a multitude of media and techniques, from sculpture to video, including installations, photographs and prints, adapting the idea, the process and the medium at all times.

His work has been shown in various national and international solo and group exhibitions, including JuntosAparte (Cúcuta, Colombia, Bienal Sur), Continuum, (Palazzo Regio, Cagliari, Italy) In/Out (Swab art fair, Barcelona) Under the Subway Video Art Night (The local, New York; La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Kino palais, Buenos Aires and Project Space Kleiner, Berlin) Quién es ese hombre (TEA, Space for the Arts, Tenerife) READ MY LIPS!
