Melanie Bonajo

Melanie Bonajo exams the paradoxes inherent in our future-based ideas of comfort. Through her photographs,  performances, videos and installations Bonajo examines subjects related to progress that remove from the individual a sense of belonging and looks at how technological advances and commodity-based pleasures increase feelings of alienation within the individual. Captivated by concepts of the divine, she explores the spiritual emptiness of her generation, examines peoples’ shifting relationship with nature and tries to understand existential questions by looking at our domestic situation, idea’s around classification, concepts of home, gender and attitudes towards value. Apart from that you should have a look at her musical project called ZAZAZOZO, you will find it following the link below and then under info. © All Images
