Sian Bonnell

Sian Bonnell works with found objects and household articles; placing them out of context within the rural and coastal environment where she lives, as well as constructing imagined landscapes in the studio. These interventions are then photographed as documents not just of the object but of an event.

Rather than seeking out distant high or lonely places which carry a sense of the exotic, spiritual or sublime, Bonnell is happy to work with familiar everyday objects in a mundane rural landscape. This undercutting of the rhetoric of romanticism is employed to comment on and create other fictions; landscapes of the imagination.
