Iñaki Bonillas

Mexican , 1981 -

Since the late nineties, Iñaki Bonillas) has established a
deep relationship with photography in his work. With a regard for the aesthetics
and the conceptual practices of the sixties and seventies, Bonillas has
been gradually isolating the constituent elements of photography and connecting
them with other procedures. In 2003 Bonillas introduced the vast photo archives
of his grandfather, J. R. Plaza, into his work. He links elements together that are
a priori incompatible: on the one hand a personal, biographical narrative that
consists of private anecdotes and emotions, and on the other a quasi-scientific
element of compilation, classifying, and archiving.
His work has been shown in exhibitions such as The Imminence of Poetics, 30th
Biennial of São Paulo (2012); Arxiu J. R. Plaza, La Virreina Centre de la Imatge,
Barcelona (2012); Poule!, Jumex Collection, Mexico City (2012); Resisting the
Present, Museo Amparo, Puebla & Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris /
ARC (2011 & 2012); Little Theater of Gestures, Kunstmuseum Basel & Malmö
Konsthall (2009); Intervención al pabellón, Mies van Der Rohe Pavilion,
Barcelona (2005); Little History of Photography, MUHKA, Antwerp (2003);
Utopia Station, 50th Venice Biennial (2003); Locus Focus and Sonsbeek 9,
Arnhem (2001).
