Interview with Bea Bonafini | Sleek Magazine

“The starting point for Bea Bonafini’s exhibition of new paintings, drawings and tapestries was the labyrinth – the “winding” path that allows the viewers’ eyes to travel between the paintings with “no direct centre.” Inspired by Hermann Kern’s 1981 book on the subject, she researched this archetype, which goes back over 5000 years and is now the central theme of her artworks.

Opening her first solo exhibition ‘A Monstrous Fruit’ at SETAREH Gallery in Berlin, the London-based, Italian artist spoke to SLEEK about the meaning behind the exhibition title, the idea of “grotesque” and why we should all learn Kung Fu.”
