Bonita Ely (CRF 2018)’s new exhibition will be opening on Saturday, November 21, at Penrith Regional Gallery (Sydney, Australia). In this exhibition Bonita Ely presents work that draws connections between human experience and the physical and psychological environments that we inhabit. Plastikus Progressus presents a futuristic museum that traces the history of plastic waste and its impact on the natural environment, including several ‘creatures’ that Ely has speculated as genetically modified consumers of plastic rubbish.  With Interior Decoration, the artist looks inward to consider the chronic, intergenerational effects of post-traumatic stress disorder as the result of conflict. Uniting these two projects is Ely’s ability to transform everyday objects into powerful mementos – reminders of personal and collective histories – that also offer hope for the future.
