Interview with Monica Bonvicini at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Interview: Monica Bonvicini
Monica Bonvicini: her hand around the room
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead
18 November 2016 - 26 February 2017
Known for her conceptual and installation art and sculpture, Italian artist Monica Bonvicini (b1965, Venice) is one of the most vital artists to have emerged during the mid-90s, going on to win the prestigious Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1999. Her work investigates the relationships between architecture, control, gender, space, surveillance and power through the means of sculpture, installation, video, photography, text and performance. Known to UK audiences for Run (2012), her light installation at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, Bonvicini is taking over levels three and floor of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, with a survey show, including a significant body of drawing, as well as several newly commissioned pieces.
Although she was busy working on the final preparations for the exhibition, Bonvicini found time to answer some of Studio International’s questions by email.
