About Bianka Dobó

Bianka Dobó´s artwork deals with several interrelated subjects.  She is interested in self-reflection, the relationship between people and their environment and how they interact in the city they are living.

The artwork we present by Bianka Dobó in Stockholm goes under the title Reconstruction and explores the relationship between individuals and how they react to the space around them.

Bianka´s images approach underground and overground public spaces, gateways objectively, where the viewer can position himself easily. The represented multilayer urban reality mirrors how we participate in the society in several ways. The garbage cans, lamp posts and world of benches tell more than we would think. It may become visual trash, but it can be an evident expression of the culture as well.

In Stockholm Bianka Dobó presents 4 hand-embroidered art pieces where she targets her focal point on some of Budapest´s main squares.



More about Reconstruction and Bianka Dobó

Bianka Dobó explores the relationship between individuals and how they react to the space around them. For its subject, she chooses the most common and mundane places, raising attention to the issues that we overlook. We only perceive these peripherally, in a paradoxical way, we are there with many other people, yet still alone.

We all possess it, yet neither of us do. The mixture of the textures with a combination of the stitched canvas gives a nice and clear picture. We all know the depicted places, through which, it is easy to place ourselves in the picture, identifying with her thoughts.

When we get going and open a door, we step out of it – kind of like a portal – and we find ourselves in a different, familiar, yet foreign space. Rush, billowing masses on the surface and below. Empty gazes meet for a moment, but they hurry onwards. We take for granted that we have buildings around us when we pass through the city.

However, the space is also “moving on”: people use it, damage or build it. Dynamic symbiosis of people and media make up the balance of the city. Humming, booming and talking. The streets are silently watching the intricate tangle of words and noises. As if weare searching for continuous feedback and echo, which proves our existence. We take on all “expected” behaviors. What if manners would disappear? In the mesh of soundwaves, which are reduced into signals we could see what Bianka’s works are telling us.
