This sculptural installation was originally shown as part of the exhibition Niet Normaal at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam in 2009. Artists from all over the world were invited to respond to the question, what is normal? The Bonfire consists of a number of previous works by Bob and Roberta Smith as well as floorboards and placards printed with snippets of overheard conversations which oftern refer to health and well-being. The artists regard the work as a statement on the descruction of creativity, as being like a snake shedding its skin or like a greatest hits album.
