Georgiana Cozma (Romania) &
Éva Andrea Szőcs (Hungary)
October 19 - November 5, 2012
Georgiana Cozma and Éva Andrea Szőcs present different typologies/attitudes: the dependant, vulnerable, contestable woman. Georgiana’s plastic discourse deals with the non-intrusive observation of the hypostases related to feminine depersonalization. Éva incites the beholder by putting under the magnifying glass of irony the hypostases of a woman bereft of femininity. Contrary to appearances, both artists achieve a recovering discourse, where the feminist enclavisation is not (at least, for the moment) the rescue solution.
The post-modernist syntagm of the body seen as fragment and the virulent presence of the trellis underlines the idea of a captive body. And not in the last, it is looked at as a product rendered by a number, a barcode, etc., as a bearer of non-authenticity. Beside the message, Georgiana Cozma’s material always receives importance and adds to the consistency of the subject, making it become either fragile or, on the contrary, hard (the stoneware).
Éva Andrea Szőcs’ appetence for the figurative is but a pretext to draw certain trajectories belonging to conceptual art. The artist apostrophizes the false feminine attitudes. Her discourse reactivates classic quotations from the history of art, like the court portraits, whose stake is absolute perfection.
The exhibition aims to rather interrogate than grant clear sentences. The challenge of drawing and potentiating a route with ceramic installations and videoart has been achieved.
