Masculine Myths

solo exhibition. installation, 2019.

The Project presents a domestic space and contains many mediums, such as wooden furniture taken from my childhood home, sculptures created by my parents, photographs, stuffed animals, and more.

Masculine myths contains the possibility of juxtaposing my own works with various different objects I collected, including photographs, sculptures, and furniture from my parents' home. I  used  different  textures  of textile materials such as cotton, silk, wool and fur. My mother helped me with knitting, sewing and using other crafts, while my father helped  me  build mechanical objects. The curatorial practice with my parents has allowed me to deepen my understanding of gender norms in my family, as well as to further examine my family's European origins (my parents originate from Poland and Hungary).
