Zsófia Keresztes
Zsófia Keresztes (*1985 in Budapest; lives and works in Budapest) 
Zsófia Keresztes’ sculptures speculate how the real world extends into virtuality, following both a technological understanding as well as Marcel Proust’s comprehension of virtuality, memory as "real but not actual, ideal but not abstract". Keresztes treats the virtual as something that is "as if" it were real, establishing game theories and What-If scenarios for how digital infestation becomes incarnated, how algorithms and digital avatars manifest themselves in the world and cannibalise sensation and perception.

Her sculptures and installations have recently been shown in, amongst others, at Abstract Hungary, Künstlerhaus- Halle für Kunst und Medien, Graz; Afterbirth of a Dream, Meetfactory, Prague; Letting Go, Trafó Gallery, Budapest; Endless Backup, Futurdome, Milano; Textour, Künstlerforum, Bonn (all 2017); HOLYLAND, Labor, Budapest; read a line (with a sarcastic undertone), A.P.A., Budapest (with Rita Süveges); The existential space of virtuality, Erika Deák Gallery, Budapest; The Dys-Picture Generation, Art+Text Budapest ; What Kind of Creature is an Artist?, Studio Gallery, Budapest; The Rings Go, The Fingers Stay, Múzeum Krt. 19., Budapest (all 2016); You dreamt with straight lines, I did with curves, which had acid shadows (with George Crîngaşu, Jaakko Pallasvuo), Trafó Gallery, Budapest (all 2015)
