TRES

Born in Mexico City, 2009 and lives in Mexico City

TRES is an art research collective that focuses on exploring the implications of public space and garbage, in particular, garbage as a physical and conceptual residue with political and material implications. Their projects draw upon different disciplines in order to generate processes and frameworks to ponder the aesthetic and social consequences of garbage. Classifications, physical descriptions, analysis of its biological residue, amongst others, are performed on the materials obtained out of their scavenging hunts. Unlike many contemporary artists who turn residual and leftover matter into works of art that will be engaged in financial transactions, therefore leading to the transmutation of its value, for TRES it is vital that these materials remain in their found state: garbage.
