PRAXIS forms a kind of photographic labyrinth in which Antoine d’Agata assembles temporalities and arranges different languages, it is accompanied by two hundred quotes from various authors who help and force d’Agata questioning his own existence.

The images date from 1986 to 2021, including recent documents, unpublished images, sometimes collaborative work, found or stolen footage, silkscreen prints and engravings made by Mexican militant artists or prisoners.

They expose the complexity of the development of the exponential violence that Mexican society is experiencing through a photography where reality always resurfaces, in its raw state. The contrast between the excess of gestures, visual saturation and rigor allows us to grasp the complexity of his subject.
