Éva Magyarósi
(1981, Veszprém)

Lives and works in Budapest

Éva Magyarósi is a very versatile artist, working with several kinds of media. She had a book of poetry published already at the age of 16; she writes short stories, creates public sculptures, animations, photos, and drawings, but she is primarily known for her video art. She often uses and mixes different techniques, as in her characteristic glass pictures, which are combinations of photography, drawing, and painting. On the other hand, in accordance with the ut pictura poesis principle, her art is not only a mixture of visual art and narration, but it is a manifestation of poetic visualization and visual poetry. Her works typically tell us about the mysteries of the female soul, about the body, the feelings, displaying polyphonic stories of strange dreams and actually experienced situations. The pieces often blend the strategies of experiencing evanescence via images and narration, and of processing remembrance through making it collective. Her works of art can be interpreted as visual diaries, in which the fictive and the personal past are blended, thus contributing to the literary works of different philosophical theories on time and memory.
