Amir Badawi works primarily in sculpture, drawing, and painting. His artwork centers on themes of tension, play, and the spaces of uncertainty that pervade the personal, social, and metaphysical realms.
Bonella Holloway (FR) explores the structures of everyday life, focusing on its humour and musicality through video, writing, sound and performance. Rhythms of transport, meals, speech, emotional patterns, sexuality, editing processes of cinema, and experimental music become tropes, used and deformed to construct her own visual universe. Bonella embraces a certain sincerity that occurs when spontaneous and imperfect details transpire. Any wrongness that may occur in work processes are deliberately kept, thus developing an unpolished and concrete aesthetic.
Thus far, Bonella’s research is built around several notions including the misuse of daily instants, stutters, repetition and rehearsal, using the invisible and daily life as a raw matter.
Bonella graduated from the Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse in 2014, and has since been working in France, Germany and Belgium. She will experience her first month as a Fluxer in September 2015.
