Eszter Bornemisza – Connection to Place Exhibition

Eszter Bornemisza – Connection to Place Exhibition

Eszter Bornemisza is a mixed media fibre artist living in Budapest, Hungary. After a career as a mathematician, she started working with textiles in the mid 1990’s. She has been creating quilts, large scale transparent fibre works, 3D objects and installations mainly from ubiquitous used soft materials.

Eszter has worked with city maps for over twenty years; she crumples, forms, and layers them while trying to understand our relations to city existence in her pieces. The experience of personal and collective stories, the sensing of remnants from earlier ages and the imprints of our ancestors’ knowledge in our consciousness all place the daily questions of our identity in a wider context. The translucent map fragments layered behind each other mirror this relativity.

She works with vintage clothes, old quilts and newspaper. The choice of this later material plays a central role in her recent work as it provides further visual experiences by its ephemeral character. It is fragile; the content is obsolete sometimes at the hour of appearance, while bearing fragments of important details from the near history. At the same time it serves as a symbol of the overwhelming avalanche of fake and relevant news we have to sift.

‘Connecting to Place’ exhibition is showing at Timeless Textiles Gallery between 22th March – 23th April 2023.
