Daniel Monroy Cuevas’ practice centers around images, using projections, scans, overexposed prints, and videos to push the boundaries of representation and objecthood. His work is a mystery in the sense that this word expresses the occult–the mystery is not something that has not come to light but something that when coming to light keeps something hidden. Recite (2008), for example, was created as a moving-image wallpaper where a video animation depicting abstract patterns of light faded in and out of focus, the montage of light formation alternately obscuring and revealing the wallpaper on which the video is projected.
He has had solo exhibitions at Museo de Arte Oriental in Torino, Museo de Arte de Zapopan in Guadalajara, Laboratorio de Arte Variedades in Guadalajara, Galería talcual in México City and Bikini Wax, Mexico City. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen, Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice, and Centro Cultural España in Mexico City, among other institutions.
