KARINA MENDRECZKY

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Karina Mendreczky with her installation with delicate lyricism, she translates landscape into an image at once real and spatially tangible and yet also ephemeral, an imaginative construct emerging out of the interplay between light and shadow, transparent prop-like elements representing nature, and drawing-based projection. The technical means she deploys, partly taken from graphic printing, partly from stage lighting, remind us, that neither nature, nor the experience of nature can be reproduced, also nature, so often perceived as untouched, frequently serves as a projection surface. At the same time, with this work the artist is reflecting on her constant travelling between Hungary and Austria, which along with questions as to the oscillation of her own sense of place, also broaches socio-political scenarios.“ Nicolaus Schafhausen "
