Artist Talk by Brigitta Varadi
Tuesday, August 23rd at 6pm

Brigitta Varadi’s work  explores how memory can inform our present day perspectives and artistic expressions. Working with different type of natural fibres like wool and linen and using textile techniques such as dyeing, felting and sculptural manipulation, Varadi searches for pattern and repetition of gesture that relate to the invisible and everyday rituals of working life and the constructed environment. The process reflects the essence of her work, an erosion of memories through repetitive action till all that remains is the action itself.

Hungarian-born Brigitta Varadi divides her time between New York and Co.Leitrim, Ireland. Her latest solo shows were held at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre (2015), Ireland, Serbian Church Gallery (2015) Hungary, Textile Arts Centre (2014) New York. Brigitta is a recipient of numerous awards, residency and fellowship programs. 
She has awarded grants from  Arts Council of Ireland Travel and Training Award, Arts Council of Ireland Artists in Prison Scheme Award, Leitrim County Council Arts Bursary, Culture Ireland Award. Brigitta was acknowledged for her contribution to the arts of Ireland by the President, Mary Mc Alesse, 2008.

She has participated in residencies at NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, NY (2014), Textile Arts Centre, Brooklyn, NY (2014), ChaNorth, Chashama, New York( 2013), CAC-Woodside, Troy, New York (2012) in the USA. She is the recipient of the Leitrim Sculpture Centre Fellowship (2015), LOCIS, Europian Cultural Program between Sweden, Poland and Ireland(2014) and TRADE (2011) Fellowships, Ireland and KulttuuriKauppila, Finland (2006).
Currently she is the Education Fellow at the Wassaic Project and selected for the NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program.  Brigitta's latest solo, GOLDENROD, a public intervention and pop-up tea shop was presented at the Ortega y Gasset Projects (2016.)

Jennifer Laiwint & AnA Collaborations Present

Fake It 'Til You Make It
June 21st @6:30pm

Jennifer Laiwint's six month residency at NARS culminates with a curated one-night performance, screening and dance event. "Fake it 'til You Make it" will bring together artists and friends from Laiwint's time in New York, in a pairing between AnA Collaborations and Jennifer Laiwint.  The event takes the term authenticity, and the many ways we strive for it, to task. What does authentic transformation look and feel like? Can we recognize it when it happens or achieve it while performing in highly constructed environments? “Fake It ‘Til You Make It” brings together artists who employ multiple strategies and mediums to navigate ambiguous spaces between authentic expression and performance, documentary and drama.  

Featured artists: AnA Collaborations, Harry Cepka, Lauren Francescone, Sascha Garrey, Nicholas Grubbs, Maya Jeffereis, James N. Kienitz Wilkins, Jennifer Laiwint
