Following the Fixing Transience (Carpet) project this summer, Mariann Imre will now be exhibiting her first solo show at Horizont Gallery.
“This is exhibition is not a retrospective although quite a few older works appear. It is rather the relation of the elements and the whole that counts here…just as if I assembled a big installation. I even considered including works from other artists; it is irrelevant if I made them… I would like to say something…so I bring in paintings, objects, images. I assemble myself. Long since my white period during the college years, I observe myself dealing with the same matter; though with various tools I circle around the same nucleus.“ Mariann Imre.
