An alchemist of an artist, Bianca Bondi conceives perpetually mutating ecosystems that she keeps evolving through chemical operations and a sprinkling of magic. Her allies include the moon’s powers and the purifying properties of salt. Sensitive to the Fagor Factory’s past, and to its sudden closure in 2015, Bondi has imagined for the Biennale a domestic world crystallised beneath a salt mantle. Both a literal and a figurative kitchen – a sly nod to the home appliances once made in the factory as well as to her own production secrets.
