Dionisio González

Gijon, 1965

Dionisio González has a doctorate in fine arts from the University of Seville, where he teaches. He currently lives and works in Seville. González works with different media and languages, ranging from video, light boxes and photography to architectural installations made from industrial and recycled materials.

Whilst at the end of the 1990s his works featured the human body treated on the basis of three-dimensionality and according to the panoptic concept that links with Foucault’s notion of “seeing without being seen”, at the beginning of the current decade and on trips to Havana, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Halong, he was impressed by unplanned architecture, and this gave rise to works that show interesting aspects of the “architectures of the poor”, altering reality with housing typical of the developed world in physically impossible interventions.

He was awarded the European Photography Arendt Award 2013. He has exhibited at the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (Seville, 2000), Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca (2002), Fundación el Monte (Huelva, 2004), Casal Solleric (Palma de Mallorca, 2005) and Domus Artium Salamanca (2006), hmong others. He is represented in a diverse range of Spanish museums and institutions: Artium de Álava (Vitoria), Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (Valencia), Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (Seville), Domus Artium Salamanca, Ayuntamiento de Pamplona, Centro de Arte Caja Burgos, Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma and Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca.
