Progress vs Regress

Melanie Bonajo is impossible to pin down to a single form. Creating across film, photography, performance and installations, she calls her works 'self-help comedy for the collective shadow'. To others, it's powerful, funny and often overwhelming. Motivated by anger and boredom, she infuses her art with a strong sense of community and equality. This image is part of an ongoing series of protests against progress. Drowning in the undertow, 'Progress vs Regress' unmasks our attitudes to nature, power and the human condition. Melanie Bonajo is represented by AKINCI.
