Night Soil / Economy of Love, AKINCI, Amsterdam
AKINCI presents artists whose working practice spans a range of current media, reflecting the diversity of communication means available within contemporary visual art.
Melanie Bonajo examines the paradoxes inherent to ideas of comfort. Through her videos, performances, photographs and installations, Bonajo studies subjects related to how technological advances and commodity-based pleasures increase feelings of alienation, removing a sense of belonging in an 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 reflecting on our domestic situation, ideas around classification, concepts of home, gender and attitudes towards value.
