Kossuth Prize- and Noémi Ferenczy Award-winning artist, Meritorious Artist

She studied at the Hungarian Academy of Applied Arts between 1969 and 1974, and received her DLA degree there in 2004. Since the mid-1970s, she has exhibited her works in group exhibitions both in Hungary and abroad, and since 1980 also in various solo exhibitions. In the 1970s, she began to move away from traditional textile compositions, breaking with traditional textile art forms, materials and techniques, blurring the boundaries between applied arts and fne art. Her works are objects, environments and installations, mostly using natural, often organic materials. In 1973 she won the second prize at the Milan Triennial of Textile Art. Between 1987 and 1990 she lived and worked in New York. Since the 2000s her work has also incorporated photography, video, video installation and performance. She was an associate professor at the University of West Hungary in Sopron.
