By exercising a methodology of work that consists of collecting, intervening, modifying and organizing objects Juan Pablo Garza would make a single installation piece that would take over the gallery walls. A sustained and creative speculation from and around objects. Entities wavering between truth and fiction that will respond to instincts and logic interchangeably. Juan Pablo Garza is interested in his relationship with his immediate environment and with a mode of production that studies the transformation of quotidian objects into expressive matter.
