Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Rebeka Magdolna Rácz – Art for me means that someone can create something unique. For example, if I see a painting, statue or designer furniture I can connect that to the relevant artist. I can immediately tell who created that piece of artwork just by looking at it and recognizing the artist’s unique style.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
RMR – I mostly paint with aquarelle. My favourite subject is the city. These are imaginery cities build up from unique sets of buildings.The other most popular subject I am working on is the dolls. They are colourful and seem to be happy, however there is something duality in these artworks. The dolls are hanged and this meant to be symbolizing today’s work where people seems to be happy from the outside, but there is something hidden reality in the inside.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
RMR – An artist shows mirror, entertain and provide visual experiences and all of there can influence the point of view of the audience. An artist redefine the meaning of beauty. They bring happiness and emotions into the audience’s mind. In my opinion, there are no sharp boarders in contemporary art in terms of what considered to be art. It is very interesting to see how the artistic freedom actually set an artist to be free.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
RMR – I grow up in a small city in Hungary, and I was dreaming about moving to a big, bubbly city. I did my first city themed artworks in high school. After I had graduated in high school, I was accepted to Hungarian University of Fine Arts and I moved to Budapest. The buildings, apartments, parks and beautiful views of Budapest were really inspired me and I created more and more artworks in the city theme. Actually, the bubbly city and milieu have been inspiring me the most.
The dolls are individuals I meet every day. They seem to be happy first, then we realize they are hanged. This duality symbolizes the pressure from our environment that has tremendous effect on us, and we tend to forget to find our real identity. We could say the we are moved as puppets in today’s world. Furthermore, I am also inspired by nature, meditation and ocean.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
RMR – To create something unique that has the potential to start a new wave. To reach that specific audience I want to reach. I would also say that time and requirements are also challenges. This is because, in today’s word, we are required to do so many other things that sometimes it is hard to find time and switch off the mind and focus only on creating artworks.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
RMR – I came across your exhibition unexpectedly, but I believe everything happens for a reason. The artworks I exhibited at your exhibition were pre-existing works.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
RMR – I think that the topic of identity is very important and actual nowadays. The rushing word has its huge influence on people’s identity and personality. We need to adapt so fast that we easily forget to focus on ourself. I think that finding harmony and balance are absolutely crucial in our life.
