• Jardin de senderos que se bifurcan

  • Albert Bonay

  • In "Jardín de senderos que se bifurcan" Bonay analyzes the processes of destruction, creation, mutilation and transformation of the human body, as well as of the work and image itself. Concepts such as identity, sexuality, anxiety, fear of death, mutilation, monstrous, temporality and the limits of language, pictorial and body are explored.
    The works that will be exhibited will use as a raw material the paint (oil and acrylic on canvas or paper) and the drawing. Bonay use the canvas as a pictorial and sculptural material due to its skin-like characteristics: it can be folded, torn, stiffened and stitched. Later, the author sew two or more bodies of different dimensions and positions, resulting in a single three-dimensional figure, twisted and wrinkled that leads to a visceral and agonizing vision of being.
    Bonay establishes a work scheme that decansizes and questions the processes of worship and protection that surround the work of art and painting as a historical entity, through direct contact and aggressiveness with which the pieces are treated. The traditional beauty canons are also reused to explore the creation of a postmodern image of human beings.
