CSILLA KLENYANSZKI Pillars of Home

source: klenyanszki

The challenges of early motherhood are transformed into a game: the lack of time, the fragility of a new life, the weight of responsibility, our changing identities, tension. These are the elements. Care, strength, patience, devotion. These are the things holding it together.

Pillars of home are ninety-eight balancing sculptures, made during my son’s nap, when our home – the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom or even the staircase – became a studio for no more than thirty minutes at a time.

The pillars rely on their own inner stability while being framed only by the floor and the ceiling. As the objects are being piled up, they become a coherent entity, but their delicate arrangement and balancing structure makes them vulnerable. They can be destroyed at any moment.

Not only the existence of the image is in danger if the installation collapses, but the noise of the fallen objects might awaken the sleeping baby, which puts an end to the working session.

Pillars of home gives ninety-eight answers to one dilemma: how does a mother find balance between all her priorities. A never-ending juggling act.

The project was made during Artist Residency in Motherhood and made possible with help of the Mondriaan Fund.

About Artist: A search for balance with a problem solving attitude characterises my work. Within my current practice I carefully examine and deconstruct personal – but universally known – challenges such as parenthood, gender, and the malleability of self identity through the passage of time. Works, such as “Pillars of home”, “to make time”, “House/hold” or the “Mothers in Arts Residency” aim to give solutions that range from the practical to the absurd.

Although my approach is analytic, the nature of the work is highly playful and experimental. To give a new perspective I often play with the borders of nonsense with a constant attraction to physical and mental tension.

Il y a un peu plus d’un an nous avions publié un extrait de la série X MARKS THE SPOT,
réalisée par Csilla Klenyánszki, jeune photographe hongroise.
Sa nouvelle série s’intitule GOOD LUCK. Bonne chance pour réussir à faire tenir en équilibre un œuf sur trois épingles, elles-mêmes fixées sur un jeu de carte, lui-même instable sur un bord de table. Csilla y arrive sans artifice et non sans talent.
Chaque chose à sa place, une place pour chaque chose.
On ne sait pas pour combien de temps, mais à l’instant du clic, rien ne bouge.

“Trato de abordar mi trabajo como lo haría un niño, sin ningún prejuicio y con los ojos completamente abiertos, sobre todo buscando posibilidades ocultas relacionadas con forma, función y mi propia fantasía. Me inspiro en mi casa y entorno, que se convierten en un patio de recreo. Me gusta trabajar con objetos comunes, descubriendo sus posibilidades, y dándoles una nueva función. El objetivo final es crear una imagen, inusual, pero familiar al mismo tiempo.” Csilla Klenyánszki, nacida en Budapest y criada en Vác, Hungria, que en la actualidad reside en Rotterdam, Holanda.
