"A search for balance with a problem solving attitude characterises my work. Within my current practice I carefully examine and deconstruct personal - but universally known - challenges such as parenthood, gender, and the malleability of self identity through the passage of time. Works, such as “Pillars of home”, “to make time”, “House/hold” or the “Mothers in Arts Residency” aim to give solutions that range from the practical to the absurd.
Although my approach is analytic, the nature of the work is highly playful and experimental. To give a new perspective I often play with the borders of nonsense with a constant attraction to physical and mental tension."
Csilla Klenyánszki was born and grew up in Hungary. She is currently living in the Netherlands. Her work has been widely exhibited and published.
