Andrea Éva Győri Estate


Andrea Éva Győri implemented her unique, very personal, very intimate kind of storytelling in a wide range of works, such as performances, videos, installations, sculptural works and drawings. Her body of work raises questions about family and femininity, the self-image and self-assessment in a way that reveals the viewer's position towards themselves. Proximity to her protagonists was of major importance to her. A skilled observer of human relations, she took up the role of observer, participant and examined person at the same time. This allowed her to join the collaborating participants in a mutual exploration of subjects of general concern, such as physical and psychological needs, fantasies, sexuality, phobia, fun, pain, cultural norms, and their overcoming. 

Andrea Éva Győri graduated in Fine Arts at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Stuttgart, in the class of Christian Jankowski, Mike Bouchet and Felix Ensslin. She studied (East Asian) Oriental Painting at Hongik University in Seoul (KR) and followed a guest course in Human Anatomy and Autopsy at the Medical University of Budapest (HU). Győri presented her work at international institutions, including Haus der Kunst (Munich, DE), Ludwig Museum (Budapest, HU), Pori Art Museum (FI), Karlin Studios FUTURA (Prague, CZ), Vleeshal Center for Contemporary Art (Middelburg, NL), Manifesta 11 (CH and NL), Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht, NL), Victoria Art Center, (Bucharest, RO), SeMA NANJI Exhibition Hall by Seoul Museum of Art (KR), Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (Taipei, TW) and /si:n/ festival of Videoart and Performance (Ramallah, PS). Her work was awarded the Esterházy Art Award in 2019. In 2022, ARGOS Centre for audiovisuals arts in Brussels dedicated the exhibition When the angels from above to Győri’s memory. In 2023, her work was exhibited at Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna, AT) and Dordrechts Museum (Dordrecht, NL).
