ARTIST STATEMENT

Eszter Sziksz

 

Life is the biggest miracle of all – but is restricted to a short time span. I am very interested in the relation of the period of being alive and time after and before. I try to decompose my visual message than build my images back to together and show them as a cycle.  My process, working and printing on ice allowed me to step above the everyday physical and chronological limitations. I can freeze time and control when it starts to unfreeze or thaw. It is amazing!

This body of work is a combination of installations; time based video work, digital prints about melting screen printed female portraits, three dimensional prints and books.
