Sydney-based artist Patrizia Biondi uses cardboard to create intricate and multi-layered sculptural objects. Biondi gathers much of her material from footpaths on recycling days. She then combines these found materials with what she describes as “virgin” archival quality cardboard. Going through an intensive process of cleaning and treating before use, Biondi hand cuts each strip of cardboard, preserving the remnants of address labels, branded stickers and packaging tape before reassembling the pieces into their intended form. Growing up in Italy in the 1970s, she witnessed years of fear, uncertainty, upheaval and monumental socio-political changes brought about by unrest and terrorism. This upbringing made her sensitive to societal issues, and the awareness that what affects one affects all. Recently pivoting to issues of femininity and civil rights, Bondi’s compositions revolve around the color pink and its default associations with women in popular culture.
