Dominika Trapp (HUN)
6. 3. 2022 – 6. 4. 2022
Dominika Trapp (1988, Budapest) graduated from the painting department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2012. Her practice has been characterized by a two-way interest: on the one hand, a sensitive painterly approach that allows for intuition and introspection; and on the other hand, an outward-directed sensitivity aiming to facilitate dialogues between communities in the service of collective self-knowledge. In her works, she often addresses topics such as the relationship between tradition and contemporary culture, women’s room for manoeuvre in Hungarian peasant communities, the historical context of eating disorders, or painting as a possible somatic method for artistic research. For the past two years, she has participated in the residency programs of Art in General in New York, the Erste Stiftung in Vienna, and FUTURA in Prague. In 2020, her solo exhibitions were presented at Trafó Gallery in Budapest and at Karlin Studios in Prague. In 2021 she participated at the 14th Baltic Biennale in Vilnius. She is currently enrolled in the multimedia art doctoral program of MOME—University of Applied Arts Budapest.
