NIGHT SOIL

A critical approach to the capitalist value system and the modern belief in progress, the conviction that the dualism between humans and nature has to be broken apart and radically rethought—these are some of the major points of departure for Melanie Bonajo’s artistic production. Stromboli.Associates, with Théo Demans and Clemence Seilles, has created a series of immersive rooms for the Frankfurter Kunstverein: playful stage-worlds and artificial landscapes which invite one to recline and slow down. At the same time, these immersive rooms also operate as an expansion of Bonajo’s filmic imagery, physically enveloping and transporting the viewer into a frenzy of colours, lights, and materials, opening up the role of a distanced observer.
