Marianne Csáky

Marianne Csaky, a Hungarian-born artist currently lives and works in Budapest and Brussels, and spent longer periods of time in Korea and in China as a resident artist exhibiting her work, teaching at universities and holding presentations. She works with different media: photo, video, painting, sculpture, embroidery, installation.Trained in arts as well as cultural anthropology and literature. After completing her  M.A. she studied multimedia design/development and video art. Since the very start of her career Csaky has been known for her non-mainstream forms of expression, her unconventional and provocative images. She has exhibited widely and her work is represented in various collections, including the collection of Lila and Gilbert Silverman (Detroit, USA), Yoko Ono (New York, USA) and Arturo Schwarz (Milan, Italy). History and personal memory, body and representation, desire and subjectivity, and the most basic and intimate spheres of the soul, mind and body in a sociological, historical and theoretical context are in the focus of her interest. She wants to reveal how all these factors work together in defining and redefining our position in the world, the different roles as individuals, members of society and subjects of history and also makers of history. What is the role of our memories, and how the re-written memories and shifting desires construct the self of a person. www.mariannecsaky.be
