Nagy Csilla

Year of stay:2014

A recurring idea in Csilla Nagy’s work are the ways of remembrance, strategies how individuals or communities are commemorating events which are of value to them. The topic of remembrance for her is a constant pulsing between the private and the global. On one hand she is trying to observe and reflect on her narrow environment, but in parallel she is seeking for a wider context.

In the recent years she has been interested in ceramics which she integrates into her artistic practices with ease: using clay in a conceptual and experimental way, trying ancient techniques, new methods, different types of clay, digging deep in the history of ceramics and searching for the latest technological innovation. Csilla Nagy is able to work from almost a miniature scale in Egyptian faience or porcelain lithophane to a large format installations.
