Alfio Bonanno

Shorelines Project, Barrie, Canada 2003. The cocoon shape is inspired by pods of milkweed plants. The Barrie-project is symptomatic of the profundity of Bonanno’s approach to nature. And when the work was presented to the public he, for the occasion, introduced one of his favourite effects - fire. The contents of the pods were dramatically set on fire. In the present exhibition the work is accompanied by an extensive text.
