Attempt at an Inventory

Retrospective exhibition of Mónica Bengoa at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Santiago, Chile, opening on December 6th.


From December 6, 2017 to March 11, 2018, Mónica Bengoa will be showing part of her most relevant works at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes of Santiago, Chile, in the contexto of Attempt at an Inventory, retrospective exhibition that celebrates her twenty-five years of artistic career.

This new exercise in which I have decided to immerse myself is, above all, an observation exercise, but not any observation, but the one given by distance, the passing of time. To look back at this set of works, produced between years 1992 and 2017, has allowed me not only to revisit the purposes that motivated certain decisions in terms of themes, materials, methods, but also to “set them down to talk” waiting for a new dialogue to emerge up among them, since for the first time they are all together in the same place.
