Wir kommen nie zu Gedanken. Sie kommen zu uns.,2016

Dora García

Dora García (*1965 in Valladolid, Mexico, lives and works in Barcelona), best known for her performances, is interested in what is enacted at the individual scale: in a radically conceptual form, at once accessible and elegant, she elects to transmit oddly coded messages which step into a specific relation with each and every visitor. Dora García is interested in everything that intervenes in the communication between an artist and his/her public: art no longer represents the world, but itself becomes a producer of realities often on the borderline of fiction and the possible. It urges us to undergo experiences other than ordinary situations in order to also understand what is normally hard to grasp. 

Exclusively for the Kunstverein, Garcia created the inscription Wir kommen nie zu Gedanken. Sie kommen zu uns. in gold leaf that spreads across the walls and calls for communication in private space.
