Artist Kata Geibl
Lives in Budapest, Hungary

How do you describe your own art practice?

I think I’m an intuitive investigator, who tries to dismantle the world and put it back together in new ways. Although how I do this changed over the years, I use more and more text in my work, and also recently acknowledged the fact that every art is personal even when conceptual.

Which question or theme is central in your work?

How we can get closer to understanding the world that surrounds us, without losing ourselves in the journey.

What was your first experience with art?

My parents had a huge Bosch album in our living room and I was fascinated by it. I think I spent half my childhood looking at those painting and building up whole stories in my head about them.

What is your greatest source of inspiration?

Things I did not see coming. They can be little things, on the bus when I see the light falling on someone’s face in a different way, or a conversation I have with a friend, that just triggers something in me. These inspirations are the most precious to me because I did not search for them. But if I do, I turn to movies and literature.

What do you need in order to create your work?

Time, my sketchbook, film, and my camera.

What work or artist has most recently surprised you?

Atlas by Gábor Gerhes. Which is a 368-page art book completed in five years with the modest intent to catalog the world.
