Gideon Horváth is the first artist-in-residence at PRÁM for 2023. He will spend two months at PRÁM, April and May. You might look forward to his solo show at PRÁM in the second half of May. The exhibition will be curated by Šárka Koudelová.
Gideon Horváth is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Budapest, working mainly with sculptural installations. Conceptually he is often dealing with queer, ecological and new materialist theories. His works question anthropocentrism and dualistic worldviews, always giving space to the sensual and intuitive ways of experiencing his topics.
In his sculptural installations he mainly works with beeswax, which he uses as a queer material as it is both very sensitive and highly resilient. The wax has the qualities of being ambivalent, fluid and constantly becoming, which are notions that are in Horváth’s central interests.
