2018: VARP NY: Adrian Kiss (HUN)

Adrian Kiss


August 1–October 15, 2018
Art in General, New York

Adrian Kiss’ work deals with picturing different shapes characterized with human, and mostly masculine properties; it is a project about form that explores portraying objects with anthropomorphic attributes. In creating and depicting vases and containers, he believes that there is an unconscious or instinctual way in which the creator of such objects imbues them with gender, in spite of the fact that gender is a social construct.

Born in Romania, Kiss works and lives in Budapest, Hungary. He holds a degree in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London, UK. His work has been shown in solo shows throughout Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic, including Through the Gate of Absence, Futura Gallery, Prague, CZ, 2017. Select group shows include Orient, Kim?, Riga, Bunkier Sztuki, Krakow and Bozar, Brussels, 2018; Tronc Metal, CAN / Centre d’art Neuchâtel, Neuchâtel, 2018; and Abstract Hungary, Künstlerhaus, Graz, 2017, among others. He was the recipient of the 2015 Esterházy Art Award, Hungarian National Museum www.adriankiss.com

Adrian will be in residence at Art in General from August 1–October 15, 2018 through the support of ART IN GENERAL and the International Visegrad Fund.
