Artist Talk with Ludwig Seyfarth and Andrea Éva Győri

Andrea Éva Győri's artistic practice revolves around the connection between the body and the psyche as a reflection of personal and social processes. Themes include sexuality and satisfaction as forms of self-care, and partnerships and the power relations that they generate. The exhibited works–mostly videos and drawings–are the result of remarkably trustful collaborations with their protagonists. The individual interpersonal and humorous encounters form a performative base that is essential to Győri's approach. Her project for Manifesta 11 in Zurich, in which she worked together with a sexual therapist, deals with the female orgasm in several series of drawings. In part, the studies are illustrations of exercises from behavioual psychology sessions. Others are portraits, in which the artist depicts women masturbating, visually analyzing their fantasies. In a time when over-sexualisation is both denounced and omnipresent, Győri offers a contrast to high-definition, pornographic photography, with its masculine gaze: an offensively subjective, artistic portrait of female nudity and intimacy.
