Dora García

Dora García (b. 1965, Spain) lives and works in Barcelona. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Dora García uses the exhibition space as platform to investigate the relationship between the visitor, the artwork, and place. To this end the artist often draws on interactivity and performance. Through minimal changes, not encroaching on the space, the room is converted into a sensory experience, with each visitor leaving it again with his or her perceptions altered, or at the very least perhaps with a degree of skepticism. The artist engages herself with the question of what is real and what is fiction, and visitors often turn into protagonists in her work: sometimes knowingly, sometimes not. She represented Spain at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. Her selected exhibitions include (d)OCUMENTA 13, Kassel (2012), Gwangju Biennial, South Korea (2010), Lyon Biennial, Lyon (2009), TATE Modern, London (2008), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2008), SMAK, Gent (2006), MUSAC, Leon, Spain (2004), MACBA, Barcelona (2002). She is currently co-director of LES LABORATOIRES D’AUBERVILLIERS.
