Edition 2011

Inaki Bonillas

Born in 1981 in Mexico City. Lives and works in Mexico City.

Since the late 1990s, 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, he 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. His work has been shown recently in various exhibitions such as Les enfants terribles, Colección / Fundación Jumex, Mexico City; El mal de escritura, MACBA, Barcelona, and Little Theater of Gestures, Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel, and Malmö Konsthall. Iñaki Bonillas is represented by ProjecteSD, Barcelona, Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels, and Galería OMR, Mexico City. Next fall the exhibition Archivo J. R. Plaza will open at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge, Barcelona.
