(Suicidal Future / Future Suicide Victim)
So that you know that what existed in the past is now ahead as an orchid in a winter garden, bleeding from a caesarean section. - René Char.
In Family Project (2007-2009) Miguel Bonneville created several works around the idea of family, exposing their origins, their context, and the permanent lesions of childhood traumas - the family as the essence of evil. With Suicidal Future, he returns to an incisive analysis that goes through time: today's adult proposes to kill the child who designed it precisely for this purpose, leaving space to create true childhood - the childhood of the future.
