Andrea Éva Győri (1983-2022) studied at Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest and at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Stuttgart (DE). She was artist in residence at the Jan Van Eyck in Maastricht (NL) and winner of the Esterházy Art Award 2020 (HU).
Győri’s ongoing fascination with the interaction of the body and the psyche, is expressed in bold works depicting affective sexual relationships. Citing Huib Haije van der Werf, ‘She had always been curious of the body and its interconnectivity. To its own nerves and feelings. Its capacity to generate affect. Instigate difference. How these could be read in its movements.’.
