Home is Where You Leave Your Belt
2019

From THONET 200 Project
Sideboard Thonet B 108, bronze, 90 × 134 × 39 cm (35½ x 53 x 15½ in). Edition of 4 + 1 A.P., signed and numbered.


Beloved pieces of furniture experience everyday life up close and often become an extension of one‘s own person. In this work, Bonvicini takes up this idea and reflects on the appropriation of objects in a domestic environment. In an ironic way, the men‘s belt on the table leg refers to its owner, who in the truest sense of the word has lowered his pants. From a distance, however, what at first seems like a forgotten or discarded leather belt turns out to be a permanently installed bronze sculpture. The play with realities, the effect of objects in their surroundings, as well as the preoccupation with domesticity and male dominance are well-known themes in Bonvicini‘s work.

In her work, Monica Bonvicini (born 1965 in Venice; lives and works in Berlin and Los Angeles) approaches the fundamental question of access to architectural matter; she questions architectural resistance to the human being. She works with and in architecture - a realm that she sees as being "basic" - to bring architecture into the non-basic realm of art. Her work is designed to instill viewers with a sense of an extreme experience, be it fear, pleasure, or even pain.  "The work, Minimal Romantik, references works by Sol LeWitt and Caspar David Friedrich. The sculpture will be made by construction workers during the opening days of the Biennale. The intention is to destroy the cube from the top downwards, turning it into a three-dimensional Eismeer landscape."
