Mutations, I Bienal de arte contemporaneo X-Border, Rovaniemi (Finland) 2013

At the heart of his installation, Torres chose to evoke different interpretations surrounding the concept of borders. With the use of domestic objects, he erected a wall resembling a barricade in the time of extreme conflict, where the besieged use anything they can find around them to protect themselves. Torres went on to explain that his piece is also a critique on today’s consumer society where people hide behind private property. The accumulation of ostentatious possessions is, according to the artist, a way of avoiding exposing the emptiness and inadequateness of those people.
