Just as architectural space needs physical contours to be defined, it needs concepts originating from our own needs and motivations. Or, in other words, the two do not exist without one another: we project our own ideas onto our surroundings just as our perceived environment affects the way we feel and think.
In the series Containing Space, on show at This Art Fair, Ildikó investigates the relationship between physical and mental space. By taking everyday items, cups, shelves, tables as a starting point, she observes how the unity of body and mind creates spatial conditions through its orientation.
Within her choice of media, Ildikó works with the conflicting duality of stability and temporality. Besides discarded objects, she uses materials that constantly change over time, often in combination with digital media.
