Ibai Hernandorena’s work focuses on the notion of modernity and in the utopias it generates until they fade through time. In this sense, he explores an uncomfortable and fugitive area, dealing with ruins, memories of a landscape, a city, a dwelling. Throughout his work, what seems familiar to us, escapes us and transforms itself.
Ibai Hernandorena exhibited at the MAK Center, Los Angeles; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Fabrica i Coats, Barcelona; APAP2010 festival, Anyang, South Korea; Laurence Bernard Gallery, Geneva; Villa Arson, Nice. He was recently nominated for the France Foundation’s public space sculpture commission in Bordeaux, France.
