BIO

Fanni Kopacsi is a contemporary visual artist born in Hungary in 1991, currently based in Barcelona, Spain. She studied fine arts at the Secondary School of Visual Arts in Budapest, Hungary. Her works are both an introspection and a reflection on human behaviour, sociocultural issues and the ecological crisis, raising questions from a critical position. Fanni’s practice has expanded beyond the limits of the medium and combines painting with sculpture using materials like textile and plastic waste. Her works have been exhibited in Hungary, the United Kingdom and Spain.

STATEMENT

What are our inadequacies, desires and hunger by which we rule our lives? And how do these hidden motives take form in the material world, in our search for beauty, in our search for truth? My work is an introspection, an examination of myself, the woman, and the observation of the world around me. My practice is rooted in recycling – the repurposing of waste materials and their transformation into artistic objects as a desire to transcend beyond the visible facade and create visual poetry in a world of decay.
