In his multidisciplinary works, Mexican artist Fernando Ortega plays with everyday perception —the negligible sights and sounds around us. In Piano Recital (2008), for instance, Ortega asked a motorcycle mechanic to tune a piano, on which pieces by Chopin were then played. Featured here are recent works and essays by curators Jens Hoffmann and Michel Blancsubé.
