Dé-constructions, Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke, Québec (Canada) 2020.

Right on them mark given today’s concerns around the pandemic, this curiosity cabinet full of colourful everyday objects connected with a home takes on the quality of a metaphor for “cabin fever,” for being shut in and confined, but also of a creative manifestation bearing hope.

After having taken over the outside of the Musée over the summer, Torres will move indoors to the Bombardier gallery in October 2020 to create an evolving and spontaneously configured work. In February 2021, he will revisit his installation to alter and transform it.
