Supermarket Gallery, Budapest, Hungary
Driven by an impulse to reframe the complex structures of society, Kata’s work fast blurs fact and fiction to establish a new vision of reality.
Kata Geibl (b. 1989, Hungary) utilises retro-futurism to explore themes of fiction and collective memory. The lack of human presence in her photographs is haunting; empty spaces and warmly lit technology revealing a strangely mechanised world. Geibl centres on subjectivity and storytelling, allowing us to find alternative, timeless narratives in her photographs. Each project is accompanied by prolific research, which has included collaborations with physicists at a university in Budapest. Her practice establishes a new vision of reality, constructing what she refers to as her ‘imaginary laboratory’.
