Description

“This is a growing collection of “paper sculptures” and photographs, in connection to/or from the Nagyharsányi Szoborpark. The images are my interpretation of what this place stood for in 1967 and what it has been reduced to today. This project involves research, interviews with the artists and organisers still alive, and (hi)stories of the past.” – Kíra Krász, 2021

From Marble to Stone, made at The Sculpture Park of Nagyharsány, is supported by the Hungarian Academy of Arts in the form of a three-year scholarship.

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. She is curious to experiment with various printing techniques, to explore new directions, and find intriguing outcomes. Her work is made using both digital and traditional darkroom processes. A key element of her work, and one that also helps to form an individual aesthetic, occurs as an outcome of her choice of printing material. 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.
