Biography

Art enthusiast, professional writer, translator, with a passion for writing poetry, Estelle Bonetto takes pleasure in exploring the fluidity of words and movements through writing and photography. Her process centers around the artistic setup of her work, with a focus on images, words, and ideas, to create her own unique esthetic.

Fragments of Identity

This series, titled Fragments of Identity, is made up of six episodes, each independent from the next. An episode consists of a collection of six 10-inch glass bottles. Inside each bottle is a photograph, laminated to preserve its integrity, as well as organic materials used as fillers (oils, salts, mosses, spices, natural fibers, etc.). Accompanying each episode are thematically-inspired poems.

This series is an exploration of the many pieces that forge my identity. A fragmented photographic mural that tells a story, an experience. I use the bottle as a medium to encapsulate these pieces of life and give them a frame of reference. They can be interpreted in many ways. The container’s shape deforms, by curving appearances, and gives depth to aspects of reality. The glass vessel becomes a mirror of myself, always changing, rarely static.
