NEL BONTE

ESD2023_future_installation-2

 

The sculptural work of Nel Bonte has a strong visual narrative. The works are minimal in line and playful at the same time. By putting works with different textures and vocabulary together in a scenography, she creates new connections referring to elements out of our everyday live. The basis of the works are 'objects trouvés' and structures of architecture that inspire her.

In Bonte's work refers to everyday elements and architecture.The interpretation and reconstruction of existing models form the basis of her work. A water tower, a toy or a dispenser, sculptures sometimes strongly resemble scale models or prototypes making the interaction with the audience. And there is always a gentle humor around the corner.
