Amos Torresin, born 1978, presents at ART@Hilton his ďAnimal MechanismsĒ. His artistic practice focuses on the dialectic relationship between past and future. Through the reuse of common materials in an unusual context, he explores the interplay between the everyday and the inexorability of time. This concept serves as a base for his research process, investigating the expressive potential of unusual materials that have reached the end of their life cycle and therefore arenít of interest for the utilitarian logics of the market. The leitmotif of the artistís interventions is the objective of restoring the objects of interest, giving them a second chance of legitimate existence by attributing a non-material value to it. With the increasing attention society dedicates to the new media, this process becomes a fascinating aesthetic operation of recovering, valorizing and transforming the object and its story.
