Art Exhibition – Memories From Materials by Krisztina Czika

Who is Krisztina Czika?


Krisztina studied and lived in Budapest.
In Budapest, she trained at the fashion and trade school of crafts, clothing, and textiles. She then concluded her studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her recent exhibitions include “Between lockdowns,” Big art 2020 in Zaandam, “Beauty Lunch” at Buro Imaginaire, Bank in Hungary, and the group show “The Space Makers” at Galerie Pouloeuff in Naarden.

She experimented with many different kinds of physical materials, focused not solely on their observable characteristics but equally on the stories and emotions they carried within them. This material fascination and continuous research have influenced both the focus and the form of Krisztina’s subsequent art and conceptual design work.


The art exhibition “Memories from materials” is inspired by Krisztina’s tremendous capability to explore, identify and reuse a particular object, substance, or material. For example, the series of photographs printed on concrete “Between lockdowns” results from the artist finding the negatives of some photos taken in Sri Lanka in 1991 during the civil war.

She depicted time and circumstances when the photographs were done, therefore memories, and brought them to life on concrete. This composite material hardens or cures over time, like memories.

The art exhibition will be in the brand new Cut-throat de Pijp at Quellijnstraat 102, Amsterdam, from September 25 through October 17, 2021. An opening reception will be held on September 25 at 4.30 pm. You can find further detail about the days, times and hours here.
