Do we reproduce a part of reality when we photograph something? Even though the photo seems to show a copy of reality, we may feel that it is already something entirely different. So the question arises: At which point do we get so far from the original that we can no longer recognise it? This photography-related question is an analogue of the sorites paradox, or the paradox of the heap. At one point, the original is turned into something different. At exactly which point does this change occur? Obviously, such an exact boundary cannot be located.

A photo steps beyond this boundary abruptly and obtains an entirely different meaning from the original. I would like to see what happens in the meantime, how the transformation takes place and what it is like. I would like to locate and show the transformation, as well as the way that the meaning of forms and lines changes. To be able to achieve this, I must make my photos as simple as possible by eliminating any redundant elements. This is the reason why I only use the most essential elements in my photographs.

1978 Nagykanizsa, Hungary

Anikó Robitz (1978, Nagykanizsa, Hungary) studied photography at the Szellemkép Photography School until 2006 and later continued her studies at the Milton Friedman University in Budapest (2008-2011). She received the Graz Cultural City Network Award in 2008 and the Pécsi József grant in 2009. She lives and works in Budapest.

While Anikó is strongly situated in the medium of photography, her work correlates with other practices of fine art such as painting and printmaking. We can compare it to certain styles from the 20th century due to its formalistic troupes, like Minimalism, Constructivism and Supremacism, which all diverge from realistic depictions in art. Her signature approach to photography thus highlights formalistically bare images, imbued with rich modernist tradition as well as contemporary art practices.
