Ilona Németh: The Gate (1992), detail

This year the Ján Koniarek Gallery presents two Slovak artists within the project EXIN 2010: 
Ilona Németh (1963) and Stano Masár (1971).
The new annex of Kopplova vila presents the early work of the renowned artist Ilona Né-meth, entitled Brána /The Gate/ (1992). The work comprises two high walls; twigs are attached to one of them and kitchen knives are stuck into the second one. A spectator, who has to pass the corridor between the two walls, must face a very suggestive situation of constraint, threat or aggressiveness. This art work stands at the author´s step-out to the installations and settings where she used natural materials. Such creation of corridors and passages culminates in her works Stena a Labyrint /Wall and Labyrinth/ (Synagogue of GJK Trnava 1996, sandbags, 60 tons). Her piece Brána /The Gate/ became a new acquisition of the collection of the Prvá investičná spoločnosť, a.s. in Bratislava.

Ilona Németh, born in 1963 in Dunajská Streda, graduated from the College of Applied Art in Buda-pest (1986). In 2001 she participated in the 49th biennial in Venice in the Czech – Slovak pavilion (together with J.Surůvka). In 2006 she got her doctor´s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts, Bu-dapest. Since 2004 she has been leading the „In“ studio at the Department of Painting and Other Media, Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava. She lives and creates in Dunajská Streda and Bratislava.
