2018: VARP NY: Martin Vongrej (Slovakia)

Martin Vongrej

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

Martin Vongrej works in the the legacy of neo-avant-garde and existentially-based conceptual art. His works are created as intuitive, and at the same time systematic, installations devoted to the issues of human consciousness and spiritual perception. They are composed from found as well as fabricated objects, paintings, photographs and drawings, often using simple methods of multiplication. Assembled all together, they are particularly attuned towards the exhibition space. Martin Vongrej often combines images and texts, newly defining elements of experience with space and time.

Martin Vongrej is an artist based in Bratislava, Slovakia who has presented his work internationally at biennial Manifesta 8, Murcia-Cartagena, ES, 2010, and biennial Remap 3, Athens, GR, 2011. He has participated in group exhibitions Paradise Hunters, Slovak National Gallery, SK, 2011, Collector, Galeria Sabot, RO, 2012, Non-profit & Profit, Spazio A, IT, 2014 or Orient, KIM?, LV, 2018. Solo shows include The Inverse, HIT Gallery, SK, 2018, and Seven Uncountable Lines, Futura, Karlin Studios, Prague, 2017. He received fellowships from Kone Foundation, FI, 2014 and Terra Foundation, FR, 2015. www.martinvongrej.com
