​Krisztina Erdei, Budapest, Hungary, 2008

Krisztina Erdei

Krisztina Erdei’s documentary-style photographs evoke a constellation of qualities or moods. They are certainly quirky and humorous but often also insolent, stirring, poetic or simply bewildering. Signs of westernisation and globalisation are everywhere in her work, which spans numerous communities across the Ukraine, Lithuania, Kosovo and her native Hungary. Investigating the spirit of the contemporary, her work also resonates with ghosts of the past, providing a glimpse into the shifting circumstances of this part of the world.


Krisztina's residency was organised in part with 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire. She travelled to Australia ll present a selection of ten large-scale photographs, taken over the last decade, at the Art Gallery of NSW. At Bundanon she explored the local area to take a new series of photographs.
