  • About the Artist

Florentina Pakosta is one of the most significant feminist artists in Austria. 

From the mid-1980s, Pakosta gradually turns from black/white works to a geometrical and abstract pictorial language. ‘All of a sudden, out of the blue, in 1989 the political and social landscape in Europe changed. The impossible became real: a new, until then unknown feeling of life came to the fore. New joys, hopes, and threats and fears were perceived – fight and flight at the same time. ’I slowly noticed how my paintings and drawings weren’t enough to deliver the new emotional structure, which is why I endeavoured to work with colours and shapes which overlapped with my new perception of being and existing.’
