Dora Garcia specialises in modifications of the conventional relationship between the work and the viewer. In videos, writing and performances she offers scenarios that alter the behaviour we expect from those concerned, despite their being in apparently normal situations. She is particularly interested in micro-events that trigger interaction with the user in public spaces, whether open or closed: squares and public transport, for example. For the Biennale she has created two works: one in the form of a guided tour, the other involving a clash with an exhibition attendant. What Dora Garcia enjoys is bending behaviour rituals – here in an art context – so as to underscore the sheer weight of convention, the complexity of power and the presence of authority.
