Marcell Esterházy

Marcell Esterházy (b. 1977) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and the ESBAM in Marseilles. He works with family materials and found archives that he appropriates and reinterprets. Since 2005, he has been preoccupied with the history of the Esterházy family, the events of which constitute an integral part of the Hungarian and universal history. To address it, he uses a variety of media, intentionally selecting the medium for each one of his works. Compression of meaning and layers of references are characteristic of his modus operandi, resulting in enigmatic and poetic pieces.
