Which is more sustainable?
Are we making something from biodegradable waste, or are we reinterpreting some raw material that is more difficult to neutralize industrially? The key is to combine recycling and everyday functionality so that the process has the smallest possible ecological footprint.

According to Ágnes Elek's education, she is a textile artist, but basically, we can see furniture and jewellery collections from her, in which textiles appear as a functional, recycled raw material. With the choice of materials, sustainability and the ever-changing fashion are treated in several ways: paper-based jewellery is almost 100% compostable or just recyclable as paper, so it doesn’t burden the environment at the end of its life cycle.

The other group of objects - as a continuation of his previous work called “Spread, Spread My Table” - are furniture made of uniquely designed, durable hardwood on the one hand, and specially made textiles from used bicycle interiors on the other.

The exhibition of the MA students of the Budapest Metropolitan University majoring in Fashion and Textile Design is both a material testing laboratory and an example of togetherness and belonging. The works created in the creative process of the dissertation attempt to create islands that help us survive in our fragile world. Where they longed for a utopian state, where they reconstructed our fallen world by presenting concrete results.

The atmosphere of the exhibition encourages us to be more than just a visitor. Let’s go back to where the works were born. In thought, we break out of the exhibition space, run out into the field, return. We lie on the grass, between our fingers beetles, muddy ashes; crush them. Let’s watch the parched lands stand in flames, the border burns. Together in the snow. Our breath rises billowing. The winds blow the clouds .... The conception and construction of a common world not only appears in the works, but the exhibition is the result of close collaboration between the university's disciplines, where master students in design and art management, as curators of the exhibition, sought to to help unfold, showcase the messages encoded in your creative processes.

workBENCH reloaded!

In this series the members show their workbench: the place where plans come true, projects materialize. Here comes new workplaces, it is more than current nowadays when most of us have to stay at home and work in home-office!

First responser in reloaded: Ágnes Elek, textile designer

Ágnes has no special period in a day to create, if she has only one or two hours (stricktly after family and official working hours) she starts to work for herself. She prefers the evenings when the world calms down, and the endless freedom and peace helps her work till night. In fact she always thinks about solving technical problems...
She mostly uses pencils and reused papers for planning, and the best ideas birth on shopping-list notes.
The main inspiration cames from her 5 years old son, he gives plenty of topics for the team of the KACs Műhely - it is a visual education workshop-team, Ágnes is one of the founder and co-worker. But there are a lot of trivial (but very important) daily activity which gives her inspiration such as washing the dishes, or washing the laundry, cooking or gardening.
She loves coffee, and there is nothing to replace it.
If something make her stop she really sop with it, and the solution comes in the most unexpected moment, and it is not uncommon either if the solution comes at night in a dream.
For working she listening to podcats in various topics: gastronomy, social history, philosophy, religious history or sustainability and environmental protection.
Her biggest wish is a loom - which is too big to place it on a workbench, but of Course she could place it somewhere else...

Living space

Sallay Anna – textile artist
The objects of our living space are really important in our daily lives, especially the ones made of leather.
We love them, because they are full of life - breathing, aging, just like us. During the creative progress they take their final shape of their own will. The convergent lines on the leather surface of my bags are like structures of the nature around us - evoking the tangled connections of paths.

Tóth Barbara – textiltervező művész
The patterns for the exhibition were inspired by moving from Pest to the countryside four years ago. Initially this change was very strange to her, maybe half year has passed when she got used to to the small-town. The 30-minute walk to the train station was tiring at first, then she discovered the benefits. Later, she became a dog owner, so she was walking with him even more, discovered the nearby forest and lakes in the process. During the walks she gleaned flowers, leaves, tiny plants, which she pressed and digitized. The pressed plants are the basis of the patterns, which were designed for wallpapers.

Zámori Zsófia - textiltervező művész
Different spaces connect to my everyday activities. Looking at these particular actions I have special moves for many small areas in my life. For instance, when I eat alone I use a different part of the kitchen than if I ate with my whole family. I have my personal space in the living room and the bathroom and even in our shared bed. I own a part of the metro when I use public transport and I have my own seat at the cinema. There’s also a section of the street that only I am using when I walk. Actions and places – living spaces.

The mostly for prevention created works have been made during the recent one and a half year. The original idea of the exhibition was born within the walls of the National Cancer Institute. Thanks to the side effects of the intravenous treatments medicines and operations the idea transformed into visually enjoyable works

Megnyitó: 2019. október 22-én, kedden 18 órakor.
Megtekinthető 2019. november 8-ig, hétfőtől-péntekig 13-18 óra között!

Zámori Zsófi munkaPAD

Zsófi Zámori at work

In this series the members show their workbench: the place where plans come true, projects materialize.
Responser: Zsófia Zámori textile-designer

Zsófi is an early-bird, she is able and likes to work in the morning. If the inspiration is missing she makes some housework, for example pairing 100 socks of the family.
She uses various of material because the textile-designers regard everything as textile... so she uses paper, pencil, paint,yarn, a lot of different kind of tools... She likes the experimentation with alternative stuffs - now she is in fight with a 50 meters long chain.
Zsófi gets inspiration from the system of the nature, sructures, traditionally technics, and what is the most important: the material which she works with. It she still got the main idea and she got the material wich is fit for it the spectrum of the possibilities is open.
She doesn't need any 'dopping' if she is in flow. The problems are solved by talking and discussing, her economist husband is a very correct critic.
Next to work Zsófi doesn't like to listening music or anything else, but when everything is ready in head and in plans, and just the finishing comes she listens to audiobooks, classical music, Kispál, ZAZ, african native music, funky...

She would like to have a bigger worktable - or two with a lot of useful tools!

strong>Responser: Zsófia Beliczay ceramic- and textile designer

Zsófi prefers the afternoon and evening for work - but in fact in the morning she mostly teaches or go for a walk with her dog, or simply just stay in bed... Her favourite tool is the loom, the work with it is like meditation. She feels lucky to work with wide variety of materials: clay, concrete, wood, papers, textiles and cominations of these. This kind of multidisciplinary cames by chance at first, but now she rather enjoy it... She drinks tea for work - every type of it, but always without sugar or sweetener, and always drinks it hot - without any rum. :)
If she has a block in a process she usually sleps on it - and the answer come in her dreams. (She believes in her dreams since graduation when a dream helped her in literature exam.) She likes listening to music next to work, but she can watch movies or intervies too. Her latest good experienc was a talk with Krisztián Grecsó (who is a writer), it was interesting how a serious disease can change one's world. What she really needs: more place! Now she always has to put an order before a new process to have enough place for it. She just started her Instagram-page with a new series of pattern-design, and she really enjoy to use fel pens for this activity instead of computer.
