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 the 15th Lyon Biennale, Institute of Contemporary Art, Lyon; 100 artists in the city, produced by MOCO – Montpellier Contemporain and Mécènes du sud, Montpellier-Sète; Liquid Bodies, Philara Collection, Düsseldorf; Brno Art Open, Brno (2019).
