Monica Bonvicini in einem Interview mit Artspace über ihre Arbeit mit verschiedenen Materialien.

To what use do you put materials in your work? How you decide what material to use for a particular work?

„I use materials to translate ideas. I treat the materials I use to make my artworks as a sort of alphabet that allows me to formulate a specific issue or theme. […] Of course, I have a material archive in my studio. As a sculptor, I’m very curious about materials, about what’s possible and what isn’t as far as materials are concerned. I actually prefer to do things with materials that one is not supposed to do with them. I mean, I use a lot of materials, tools that normally have a specific function, and I like to reshape that function, to shift it in another direction.“
