About the artist
Andrea Éva Győri (1985, Budapest – 2022, Rotterdam) studied painting at the fine art academies of Budapest and Stuttgart and was the recipient of several international scholarships and artist-in-residence opportunities. She worked in several media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, and video. Győri's works focus on the mental and physical conditions of being a woman based on personal experiences. Her explorations have encompassed emotions, muscles, and organs, as well as their interrelations. In her performances and video works she frequently participated with friends and family, and collaborated on projects with individuals or groups involved in mental processes such as meditation or psychotherapy. Győri's works have been shown at international institutions including the Haus der Kunst in Munich, the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, the Vleeshal Center for Contemporary Art in Middelburg, and Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht. She was an exhibitor at MANIFESTA 11 Zurich with her Vibration Highway project which was also published in the form of a book in 2018. In 2019 she received the Esterházy Art Award.
