MT. TORRES



In the middle of “Once” district in Buenos Aires, there is a window filled with plants covering its entire surface. Inside lives and works Mt. Torres, Peruvian immigrant and fabric cutter.

After taking an interview to Mt Torres, I’ve designed a flyer telling his story. I distributed 1000 edition of the flyer trough his neighborhood and he became quite famous within the surroundings.

USEFUL ADDRESSES, A TRIBUTE TO MT. TORRES


In 2007 I was invited to the city of Rosario to do an intervention in an exhibition space. As a tribute to Mt. Torres, I spent a whole day collecting plants during a walk through the city and later exhibited those plants with the addresses from where they were taken, so people could make a mental map of the route I took to collect the plants. On the jars there are also information about the type of collecting for each plant: Found/ Stealing/Loan/Gift .

After the show was finished I took the plants back to Buenos Aires and planted them on a public park where they’re now growing healthy and strong.
