Lilla Khoor, Election Observers 1990-2010, 2010. Mixed media installation.

Lilla Khoor, Great Hungarian Interiors, 2011. Colour photograph.

Employing varied media, including video, sound, photography and found materials, Lilla Khoor creates site-specific installations, often exploring Hungarian national identity within the wider European context, specifically investigating the status of female identity within these geographies. With a strong research base and a critical approach, Khoor examines how people deal with the mythologies and narratives of history, creating works that both use and alter scientific methodologies.

During her time at Gasworks, Khoor is interested in exploring the history and tradition of feminism's conjunction with migration within the UK. She is also collaborating with the London based cooperative “The Gaze”, whose aim is to raise awareness and campaign on social issues through art.

The artist's recent solo shows include: 3rd Drawings and Sketches Meeting, Labor Gallery, Budapest, Hungary (2011); Instant, Institute of Contemporary Art, Miskolc, Hungary (2011); Election Observers 1990-2010, Óbudai Társaskör Gallery, Budapest, Hungary (2010); Flowers of Our Lives, Centre of Contemporary Art, Torun, Poland (2008); As Bring Collective!, Vienna, Austria (20018); !Revolution?, Kunsthalle, Budapest, Hungary (2007)

The residency is supported by ACAX and the Ludwig Museum, Budapest.
