Exhibition by fibre artist Eszter Bornemisza
15 July – 15 August 2020
Humanoid objects made with uncontrolled zest are floating among the walls of FUGA’s trezor room. Eszter Bornemisza’s pieces were designed mainly during the lockdown months of the Covid pandemic that were fraught with uncertainties – vulnerability and worrisome prospects find relief in these pure and grotesque objects.
The distortion-assembling of basic space geometric forms and a series of free associations developed these figures to become players of our anxiety. And now? The exhibition is intended to reflect on the pressing questions of our environment.
The material of the objects is paper clay that the artist has cooked from sedge and rush harvested by herself. The soft and mellow material that has turned off-white as a result of drying has become a counterpoint to the unnerving circumstances.
Meet the artist: 22 July, 29 July, 5 August, 12 August from 5 pm.
