Souvenirs that reimagine the world about us

Jorge Mañes Rubio was a speaker at TEDxMadrid. Whether in a parking lot in a supermarket in London or in abandoned cities in China, Rubio’s work makes us travel and see things that are not what they seem to be. By researching exhaustively and reinterpreting , the artist suggests new values for familiar places. Through memories, pictures and interventions, Rubio re-creates his own story-telling. He mixes fictional elements with reality on purpose, and this unconventional approach becomes the vehicle for sending a social message about art and change.
