Kíra Krász was born in Pécs (Hungary), 1995. She moved to the UK to study Photography and graduated in 2019 from the University of Brighton. Kíra’s work places emphasis upon the physical properties of the photographic print. For her the act of printing an image does not represent a conclusion to a defined process but rather an opportunity for discovery. Her work is made using both digital and traditional darkroom processes. She prints images on old paper, family recipes, cereal boxes and even directly onto pages torn from books. By doing so, she achieves a sense of harmony, or in some cases, deliberate dissonance, between the image and its print, often printing one image several times, on several different materials to observe how it either embraces or rejects different canvases. She also applies methods such as cutting, layering and montage as well as installation.
“In search of the origins of personal understanding and by engaging with the forms of the once learned and since forgotten, I encourage my mind to wander and to question everything that surrounds us: plants, stones, forces or people interacting with each other. […] In Thought after Taught I use those yellow sheets of exercise books, those textbooks, and various other educational materials to show where the base of my experience lies, where the origins of the visual codes might be found.” – Kíra Krász
