Illusion Brought Me Here is an augmented reality app, that is also a work of art by Mario Garcia Torres.

A holographic 3D image of each of the artist's collaborators for the last twenty years will appear hanging around the eponymous show's galleries at the Walker Art Center, in Minneapolis. Some of them, had only met before inside Garcia Torres' memory.

This piece is installed right now at the museum, and can´t be expereinced anywhere else; it was created specifically to be shown, along many other works, for the first time in this survey exhibition, which will travel afterwards to Wiels Art Centre, in Brussels. 

Mario Garcia Torres wanted to have all his collaborators of any source, from curators to sound producers to script-writers to be present in Illusion Brought Me Here. It’s for him a form of acknowledging their input but also the fact that works of art are not made in solitary and many other people influence their realization. I am part of the group of his collaborators, and I will be inside the galleries, at least until the show comes to an end.

See you there!
