Fibre Works 1968-1973

Opening: 18. April 2019 at 19:00
The fibre works realized by the artist between 1968 and 1973 are reunited again after their exhibition in Geneva in 1975. The works retrace the path that the artist has made between two-dimensional and three-dimensional thinking, on which she has explored depth, volume as well as the spatial properties of weaving with sisal.
Kuchta took an active part in the formal renewal of textile art in the sixties in Hungary, which allowed the medium to outgrow its traditionally decorative reception, its recurrent use as a tool for artistic propaganda, and to become a channel of abstract artistic expression that silently opposed the socialist realistic style propagated and favoured by the Hungarian aesthetical ideologies.
