Brigitta Kocsis
Brigitta Kocsis continues to explore the space between representation and abstraction. By exploring the limitation of both she arrives at an image of collapse where the abstraction causes the figurative image to give way within an abstract field. The compositions are focused on investigating the shifting concepts of the human body and its environment. Contemporary discoveries in anatomical technologies have profoundly changed how one perceives the human body. In Kocsis’ current project Secret Mechanisms the human figures like actors depicting a kind of abhorrent contemporary beauty in the age where science fiction and artificial body parts are no longer fiction. Secret Mechanisms explores how technology can alter perception by interacting with the methods and processes involved in how the human body works. The tension contained within the bodies of the characters, due to the pervasive technologies, communicates a sense of contemporary environment in its fractured state.
