TIMEA ANITA ORAVECZ
Timea Anita Oravecz’s artistic production is based on different mediums like sculptures, objects, installation, performance, public art, site-specific intervention and videos.
The point of departure of her art work is her personal history: in the past ten years she lived in different West European Countries challenged by the cultural and social diversities compared to her childhood in the socialist regime in Hungary. Her past experience as immigrant influenced strongly her artistic expression and as well, this is the reason why she became more sensitive for social problems and caring for people who actually live on the edge as a fragment of the society. She is interested in working on the conflict between bureaucratic procedures and individual needs, starting from the inner confrontation between personal identity, culture of origin and need of integration.
