The obvious associations that spring to mind when discussing performance are not (the paradigm of) crime or psychoanalysis. Neither are they politics, nor psychiatry. Even so, Dora García’s work often speaks of the overlapping of these three circles: art, politics, and psychiatry. By chance, with the work of Allan Kaprow serving as a bridge, García discovered with wonder the work of Óscar Masotta, the Argentinean psychoanalyst and author who founded the Freudian Library in Barcelona and introduced the ideas of Lacan to Argentina and Spain.
While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
