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.
