Zsuzsanna Szegedi - Practice

Zsuzsanna is a Hungarian born artist, working in multiple mediums, combining painting, video, photography and installation. Her previous exhibits include Absent | Present at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA and Trace with Me at the Dumbo Arts Festival in Brooklyn NY. She is currently a visiting artist at Wellesley College.

From Zsuzsanna:
The works are part audience performance, part video and part hand-drawn imagery. I investigate contradictions within the creative process, the idea of “complete”, temporariness, mistakes and our performative relation to it all. The deconstructions – performed by the audience – become a reversed creation placing the attention on process instead of the product. By allowing the limits of the art to be pushed further than the “finish”, the status of “complete” becomes arbitrary.

Practice is exhibiting one of Zsuzsi's videos as well as one of her live drawings.

Her dynamic approach, questions about her process, and the making of art will be discussed even further at the artists talk on Friday, March 21 at 7 pm.
