Miguel Bonneville's new performance "I wanted to change the world", Sala do Veado, Lisboa 29/03

Miguel Bonneville presents its new performance at the ÇLisboa Natural History Museum's Sala Do Veado.

'I WANTED TO CHANGE THE WORLD. But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself' says Aldous Huxley. And I repeat it.

In this performance, my arms are tatoed. In a real and permanent way. It's a tradition for those who don't want to forget. A tradition of constant rebirth. To tatoo the next step of a philosophy that started before. A philosophy that define existence.

Conception and interpretation - Miguel Bonneville with Daniel's collaboration
Assistance - André Duarte
Photography - Joana Linda
Video recording - Sofia Arriscado
Production - Miguel Bonneville

MB#6 performance by Miguel Bonneville at the Berardo Collection Museum, Lisboa, 24/01

Miguel Bonneville presents its ¡performance MB#6 at the Berardo Collection Museum, in Lisboa, in the framework of the She's a Femme Fatale exhibition.

The MB#6 performance, based on the testimony of 6 women talking about intimacy in relation with the artist, is a new step in Miguel's work, dealing with questions such as authorship, originality, identification, narcissism and autobiography. Autobiographies done by women were considered for a long period in history, as a subgender for being incomplete, patchy, discontinued, incoherent and reduced to privacy. MB#6 is an hommage to those works as there is actually a growing awareness of the impossibility for the autobiography to be narrative and continued. MB#6 claims thats the essence of autobiography is a permanent construction and regeneration process?

Miguel Bonneville was the homesession 5th resident.

Where: Berardo Collection Museum, Praça do Império, 1449-003 - Lisboa
When: 24/01 from 5.30 to 7pm.

Presentation of JÉRÔME, OLIVIER ET MOI art book by Miguel Bonneville at Gallery 3+1

This work was made during a residency at Homesession, in Barcelona. It is a diary about living with a couple, about doubts and reflections concerning love and intimacy.

I’m quickly distracted by the ceremony of opening and closing things and explanations and English speaking attempts. I say the least. I stare at the cats. I entertain myself with papers, my agenda.

Miguel Bonneville's Performance, Evora International Dance Festival, 13/12

Miguel Bonneville presents a performance-conference about the MB#4 performance, which could be considered as an "off version" of his original action. This event is co-produced and organized by the Evora International Dance Festival.

MB#4, in my life, is a step forward. It is to know that my heart still works and that it doesn’t always make mistakes. It is to know that a cycle was closed. But in itself, MB#4 is a step backwards. I wonder if it’s not always like this with me. This attempt of balance between one thing and another. And if I don’t have to win from one side, to lose from the other. Miguel Bonneville

Miguel Bonneville presents his new MB#6 performance, 13/11 and 14/11

MIGUEL BONNEVILLE will present his new performance at the Graça Brandão Gallery in Lisbon, for the Temps d'Images-Portugal Festival.

Para MB#6, Miguel Bonneville will invite 6 women to go on with his autobiographic research. Instead of referring to himself in the first person, Miguel Bonneville will try to get a new perspective in its work about identity with a multidisciplinary investigation, based on the testimony of 6 women talking about intimacy with a common point between each of them: they were invited to talk about Miguel.

Miguel Bonneville will use the feminine first person as a parabole for all those autobiographic works written by women, who are historically considered as incomplete, discontinued and limited to the private sphere. The use of the women speeches allow him to broaden and deepen his own work about narcissism, intimacy and autobiography, but it's also a way to underline the impossibility to build a continued and complete narrative autobiography. MB#6 stands for an autobiography which would constantly regenerate and regain its accuracy.

Where: Graça Brandão Gallery - rua dos caetanos, 26 (bairro alto), Lisbon When: Temps d'images Festival, 13/11 and 14/11 from 5 to 8 pm.
