Iñaki Bonillas | Escritura Nocturna

Iñaki Bonillas, Escritura Nocturna (Nocturnal Writing), 2015.

Iñaki Bonillas’ latest print project is based on photographs, collected by the artist’s grandfather, kept in black letter size pieces of paper and then covered with embracing plastic sleeves. After years of protecting the images from dust and erosion, these photographs stamped their contour onto the sheets with such precision that we see pages full of empty pictures, hollow squares—like ghosts of past images, or a code that needs to be deciphered.

Iñaki Bonillas, born 1981 in Mexico City, lives and works in Mexico City.
