Like a quantum cartographer, Agota Magyar captures terrains from above and in non linear time. Taking us to soaring heights to look down and reflect upon the historic landscape of her home country - Hungary. In her collages/assemblages, Magyar reflects on the history of the country, pre and post its communist era. In a cubist style, she describes the stereotypical, high-rise homes built during communism - jagged blocks and ominous black lines, offsetting these with shapes that represent the more recent design and architecture of the region.
