Abstract

In Memoriam (2018) an artwork installation of four artworks to be hung together again use the blown up portrait image. Each of the images represents a portrait of the same person taken at different times. Some are more staged photographic studio images whereas others are passport and identity card style images and more everyday visual portraits. In cropping the images and making them much larger in size other references within the image are negated and a focus is given to the face fixed within the uneven frame of portrait and textile recalling the memory and post memory installations of Boltanski. The cropped portraits printed onto silk fibre substrates that have been created as non-woven cloth by starch glue appear as fragments of a bigger piece that have decayed and deteriorated through time. There is a sense of a tapestry that has worn referencing the fragments of the worn, the lost and forgotten; the anonymous ghosts that once flourished and laughed and walked the town now decaying in memories. In Memoriam (2018) was selected as one of the artworks to tour eastern Europe from 9th September through 2019 in The 5th Textile Art of Today Triennial Without Borders. The work was selected by the curators commission which included Katona Szabó Erzsébet, Union of Fine Arts and Utility Art in Hungary and curator T.A.O.T. of the Pesti Vigadó Gallery in Budapest (HU), Anna Ondrušeková, director of Tatra Gallery in Poprad and curator T.A.O.T. of the Tatra Gallery in Poprad (SK), Simonffy Márta, chairwoman of the Union of Fine and Applied Arts in Hungary and curator T.A.O.T. of the exhibition Pia Vigadó Gallery in Budapest (HU) and Júlia Sabová, Head of the Department of Textile Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava and curator T.A.O.T. of the exhibition at Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum SK). The work was selected from 1000 artworks from 400 authors from 5 continents.
