Een compilatie van interessante interviews van Melanie Bonajo
Meet The High Priestess Of The Anti-Selfie, Dutch Artist Melanie Bonajo (NSFW)
Een interview geschreven door Pricilla Frank, gepubliceerd in de Huffington Post
Taking anti-selfies, peeing in public, dyeing your pubic hair in neon hues. These aesthetically electrifying forms of contemporary rebellion feel like they could only have spawned from the present moment, one marked by omnipresent smart phones and tyrannical beauty norms.
But Dutch artist Melanie Bonajo has been challenging gender identity and western notions of happiness with her striking breed of personal/political projects for the past 10 years. Her multidisciplinary works, exploring the female body and its relationship to sex, domesticity, oppression, and censorship, were certainly ahead of their time. And now that the world has caught up with her, it can't stop drooling.

In your "letter to the cosmos", which can be downloaded from your website, you write about the spiritual emptiness of your generation. Can you explain this emptiness a bit more?

Een gesprek tussen Melanie Bonajo en Kim Hiorthøy gepubliceerd op Bombmagazine.
Melanie Bonajo is an artist, performer and musician who, together with Joseph Marzolla, plays in ZaZaoZo, a space, folk, tribal pop music project. In 2013, the duo released their album Inua on Tsunami-Addiction, which was recorded during the winter, in an isolated Arctic village of East Greenland. Their music and performances are inspired by places unpierced by human thoughts, erosion of the ethno-spheres, absence of history, tri-genderism, suburban rituals, magic in the space age and unrevealed yet perceivable parallel universes, like the spirit of Inua.
The two spoke over Skype about Kim Hiorthøy’s new album, the creative process, and the Internet (of course).
