Judit Kis

The Dr. Éva Kahán Foundation is pleased to present an exhibition by the Hungarian intermedia artist Judit Kis at Kahán Art Space Vienna & Budapest.

Kis presents her latest video works and sculptures concerning her ongoing research on self-healing processes. In her performative art Kis reflect on the experiences and traumas that shape our identities, personal boundaries, and behavioral patterns. The artist combines digital content with installations of objects and expands into participatory performances and community engagement. During the exhibition we invite the audience to take part at various activities, such as yoga & dance performances and individual meetings with the artist.
