Publisher's Description
In order to illustrate the complex and often oppressive relationship that exists human beings and our material things, Dutch artist Melanie Bonajo contorts, binds, balances, and burdens her female models with the objects of everyday life: chairs, bookshelves, aerosol cans, food, empty containers, and cleaning supplies. Her living sculptures evoke a visceral response; as a viewer, you can't help but identify with the human body laden with a weighty suitcase or struggling to balance a tray full of objects and garbage that might be needed again someday. Furniture Bondage presents 22 full-page photographs of such pieces, followed by a list of participating models and an essay by the artist entitled 'Floccinaucinihilipilification.'
