Description of Work
Zony uses video as a tool to experience the world through space and time. He is fascinated by invisibilities and the possibility of feeling the immaterial. Phenomenology allows him to perceive and feel. He likes contact with people, understanding their relationship with the world, erasing boundaries and highlighting humanity.
Born in Mexico City in 1978, Zony has studied at the Active School of Photography, the Academy of Visual Arts, and received his bachelor’s degree (Academic Excellence award) in Communications from Iberoamerican University, all in Mexico City. In 2012, he received his MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media, from the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2002, he was honored to be selected as the Mexican delegate for the international cultural festival “Caribbean Fire,” in Cuba, and was the Cultural Leader of the “Community leaders training seminar” in Peru in 2000. His solo shows include “Walkers” at The Little House Gallery and 100m3 Gallery in Mexico City (2008), and “Post Data” at the State Theater, Guanajuanto, Mexico (2007), and Jalapa Veracruz, Mexico (2005). His work has been shown in New York at the Guggenheim, Gallery 136, and the Michael Mutt Gallery, as well as at the VI Art Biennal in La Paz, Bolivia (2009), the XIII Biennial of Photography (2009), and the Cultural Institute Mexico-Israel (2002), both in Mexico City.
He was a 2010-2012 Fulbright Scholar, received the FONCA Scholarship (National Fund to Arts and Culture) in 2011 in Mexico, won 1st place in the 2010 Mifel-Aviv photography contest, and was selected as part of “35 years, 35 Distinguished Students” at the Active School of Photography in Mexico City.
