Ekaterina Shapiro-Obermair, „Oni i my” („Them and Us”), gwasz na drewnie, 150×150 cm, 2012. Wystawa „Beyond the Obvious – Contemporary Women Artists from CEE”, Deák Erika Galéria, Budapeszt 2015
Shapiro-Obermair is often dealing with the legacy of the Russian avant-garde, questions related to architecture and urban space and she is interested in “the correlation of formal and social issues.” (quote from the artist) In her installations the artist combines modernist-minimalistic approaches with the strategies of repetition and multiplicity, in order to create a precise yet often uncanny work. These special “constellations” which combine paintings and videos as well as found objects, are also reflecting on the post-socialist era, our current geopolitical circumstances and present a new kind of dialogue with the history of art.
