Memento Mori: Skulls

Bonomini’s Memento Mori are a symbolic representation of the fragility of the human race, a recurrent narrative and preoccupation in the artist’s work. The often fragmentary nature of the skulls lends them an archaeological air, inhabiting a purposefully ambiguous space between art and artefact. Carefully forged by hand, the creative process itself offers a further meditation on transience, taking its cue from the sculpture’s title: ‘remember that you will die’.
