Melinda Doktor. Enclosed Places

Event organised by Melinda Doktor
Disclosing the analogy between memory and glass, the objects emphasise the simultaneous volatility and rigidity, distortion and transparency of these two materials. The still and silent images, or visions of memory, placed in the glass dome, frozen in the moment through the deforming, amorphous glass and light, thus becoming shapeless and fragmentary. The protective glass dome creates a dreamlike microcosm where the relationship of part and whole reveals a new layer of interpretation.

Melinda Doktor (Hungary, 1998) graduated from the Secondary School of Visual Arts in Budapest in 2017, where she received the Vilmos Zsolnay award. She has been studying Glass Design at the Moholy- Nagy University of Art and Design since 2017. She designed the award for the International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in 2019 and received the Stefan Lengyel scholarship for her dessert plate design for the Onyx fine dining restaurant in 2021 while still in postgraduate education. In her works she often uses different materials – copper, metal, pigments and stickers - with hot glass. Nowadays she mostly deals with flameworking techniques, especially with neon art making.
