Mario García Torres -
In Five Feet High and Rising

In Five Feet High and Rising, artist Mario García Torres tracks a somewhat esoteric cultural history of rivers. Five Feet charts and merges different stories of movement, migration, and fragmentation while drifting through a combination of images and music that make reference to small and large waterways. In a personal story that disrupts and traverses chronological time, García Torres directs the overflows of these disparate rivers together into a performed new narrative.
