Artist Statement 

I’m a Hungarian-born visual artist working transdisciplinary with photography, video/installation & CGI, based in Zurich. In my practice I often reflect on the question of possible futures, the balance between man-made and natural materials, represented through a humorous and feminine prism. My transdisciplinary approach to moving and still images, and video installations opens up new visual spaces, offering visitors a sensory experience with different levels.

‘Material Landscape’ is my cohesive collection of visual and material research composed of different projects, each exploring the genre of still life from a different aspect. I like to refer to them as ”moving still lifes” expanding the momentum and questioning the future of the medium.

‘If I could only be sure’ was the initial project to explore and create an immersive visual experience, sensing this mercurial force of constant changes, the “Lauf der Dinge”... I’m inspired by how objects develop characters and capacity for mimicry, and how their meanings are constantly challenged as their visual aspect changes.

Connection, time and perception are at the core of my artistic works, using materiality and surreality of real and generated objects. Food and its slow process of beautiful decay with its deliberately repulsive aesthetics are repeatedly featured in my practice.
