Basic Fibre in Art
From 9th December 2022, faculty members and students of the Faculty of Textile Art and Fashion Design of the Łódź (Poland) based Strzemiński Academy of Fine Art’s Design Institute are showcasing their works in Pesti Vigadó’s ground floor exhibition hall.
Earlier, in the spring of 2018, Łódź University’s KOBRO Gallery, which functions as an exhibition hall showcasing contemporary fine art and applied art, hosted the exhibition “50 Years – 50 Artworks”, which presents a selection from Hungary’s biggest collection of textiles on show in the Gallery of Szombathely. This time, in the scope of this exhibition staged in Pesti Vigadó, the Hungarian general public will be able to get an insight into Polish contemporary art’s latest tendencies of composition techniques involving basic fibres for structure formation.
Apart from artworks prepared through traditional artisan procedures and techniques featured in applied arts, the exhibition in Pesti Vigadó also presents autonomous experimental artworks in line with international tendencies characterised by the blurring of genres. This showcasing presents the richness and diversity of changes in perspectives, as approached by different generations, and also sheds light on technological diversification in arts through such textile art, sculpture and digital artworks that have emerged as a result of the continued interrelatedness and interconnections between applied and fine arts.
Curator of the exhibition: Ferenczy Noémi Award winning textile and fine artist and Full Member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts Csilla Kelecsényi
