  • About the work

Diptychon: 185x157 cm & 185x137 cm.

"As most of my works has personal references, this one has, too: I painted Patrick (the artist's partner Patrick McGrath) Adam immersed in his books and words - men’s words -and myself as Eve, fully aware of the sex industry where women’s bodies were abused “as objects of desire—with touch”. (The dancer’s body could be touched in Harmony.) Patrick is as Adam in the Paradise of books, with words of Adam, and I am as Eve in Hell, closely witnessing the abuse of women. I painted Eve as my own flesh forged into dark steel, holding a round mirror with my legs, showing the misery of the world: “the vagina”, from which we are all coming." (Orshi Drozdik, New York, 11 June 2021)

About the Artists

1946 , Hungary

Orshi (Orsolya) Drozdik is a Hungarian-born (1946) visual artist resident in New York, who was not only one of the defining figures of Hungarian conceptual art in the 1970s but is also an outstanding exponent of international feminist art, a trend that came to the fore in the 1980s. In her works the human body is a reappearing motif and often it can be the medium too. With the concept of using her own body Drozdik is examining the relations to the traditional female role model that appears in physical and psychic spaces and that is fixed in academic discourse. Orshi Drozdik’s figures and shapes are rendered indistinct through the act of erasure. They simultaneously reflect on presence and disappearance, on completeness and absence, on recognisability and unrecognisability, on physicality and sensuality, on freedom, and on the image of female identity in her own times.
