Andrea Éva Győri

Andrea Éva Győri (b. 1985, Budapest) is a Hungarian artist living in the Netherlands. After studying fine art at the academies of Budapest and Stuttgart she was an artist in residence at the Van Eyck Multiform Institute for Fine Art and Reflection - Residency Program in Maastricht. Her artistic practice revolves around the connection between the body and the psyche, seen as a reaction to personal and social processes. Themes include sexuality and satisfaction as forms of self-care, as well as partnerships and the power relations that they generate. Individual socialization always forms the backdrop. The created works–mostly videos and drawings–are the result of remarkably trustful collaborations with their protagonists. The individual, interpersonal, and humorous encounters form a performative base that is essential to Győri’s approach. In a curious, almost childlike way, her process-based work unearths an honesty and intimacy that is echoed in the drawings. Győri has presented her work at international institutions including Haus der Kunst in Munich, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, Vleeshal Center for Contemporary Art in Middelburg, Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht. She was also an exhibitor at MANIFESTA 11 Zürich.
