Bea Bonafini solo presentation | Eduardo Secci/NOVO | Art Brussels

Art Brussels

Dates: April 28 to May 1, 2022

Exploring the origin of form and borrowing from an abstract scientific method in poetic literature, Bea Bonafini’s 2022 solo booth at Art Brussels, Where the primitive one becomes two, owes its title to a line by Georges Bataille which describes the generative potential of the primal cell in asexual reproduction.

The new body of work, featuring hand-tufted bamboo silk tapestries as well as a new series of paintings on cork, confronts the viewer with swirling bodies, fantastical figures, dissolving in a pool of multiplicity – an imagery populated by evanescent silhouettes that recall the primordial while gently situating the observer in a surreal atmosphere where aesthetic sensitivity intersects material possibilities of craftsmanship.
