Season 7-Episode 4 – Art and Living Magic-Bianca Bondi
Born 1986 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Lives and works in Paris, France.
With a multidisciplinary approach that is often site-specific, Bianca Bondi’s practice being very much process based, is a blending of material experi- ment and method. Materials are chosen for their potential for transformation or their intrinsic properties; the combining of which results in entirely strange and new surfaces. Her work process can be likened to ritual practice or a sort of instinctive alchemy which encourages mutation in symbiosis with its environment – a conceptual performance of objects and their matter within the macro and micro. She relates these organic encounters to current situations or the history of the space placing an emphasis on ecology and the intangible while drawing her inspiration from the occult sciences.
