Acapulco Chair

Mario García Torres

May 2022
A fresh take on the popular Mexican chair of the same name but reworked in beautiful carved Onyx. One single cut in the stone transforms it into a majestic piece that brings nature and furniture together.
Mario García Torres describes himself as a conceptual artist who makes work about the history of conceptual art. He uses several media—including photography, film, performance, and printed matter—to reprise or respond to past works of other artists. As he explains, “my work doesn’t really become a remake of the conceptual story but more like a second rehearsal.”
