Dorottya Vékony

Dorottya Vékony is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Budapest, Hungary. Her main field of interest is examining and creating fictional or real communities, through which she aims to understand humanity’s deepest and most fundamental desires. Will humans ever find a form of settlement that satisfies these desires? Along existing and fictional concourses, she offers alternatives on how we can reinterpret the notion of a community. Let it be a micro-community (such as a relationship) or a concourse at a much larger scale. The unconcealed purpose of these experimental groups is to find functioning systems that can be utilized in practice. Dorottya determines the composition, the form and the purposes of each community through particular network models and structures. Her fundamental medium is photography that she often combines with other disciplines, such as objects, photobooks or video.
