Marta Racz's artworks usually considered as conceptual art based on narratives, texts and void, using the widest range of possible old-fashioned and brand new mediums.

In the last few years she was creating artworks with mixing textual and visual dimensions. Working with books allowed her a textual approach to art but being a visual artist needs to step back from literature. She tries to see (and makes others to see as well) different stories in a book, other than the original and readable one. She tries to read between the lines on her visual ways.

Her diploma piece was a book what she has created from 39 different books - pages by pages. After she has nailed a Balzac novel through all the letter 'e's. She has typed on cigarettes or stamped a lifetime on a wall. She has reordered all the words of a novel to see how is a story looks like when it becomes a dictionary. She has recreated stories, visualized texts. She has always wanted to stay close to literature but she has never been able to write any. So that's why she recycles.
The television and the TV magazines are always her favorite sources of everyday stories and spoken language. She used to use these magazines as collections of short stories from the 21st century because no matter how big a drama is they only tell them us in a few sentences. And with no ending (not to be a spoiler) so we can end all the stories as we would like to. She made a machine - a sound installation called Soap Opera - and with the help of this creation anyone was able to create his/her own audible soap opera.
 

Marta Racz was graduated at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2004 and now she is a post graduate student there. She is also a board member of the Studio of Young Artists' Association in Budapest.

In the last few years I was creating artworks with mixing textual and visual dimensions. I know that I am not a writer and I cannot make new book - I only recycle the old ones. I try to see (and make others to see as well) different stories in a story, other than the original and readable one.
During a residency in Wien I would like to continue this type of working method. The television and the TV magazines are always my favorite sources of everyday stories and spoken language. I used to use these magazines as collections of short stories from the 21st century because no matter how big a drama is they only tell them us in a few sentences. And with no ending (not to be a spoiler) so we can end all the stories as we would like to.
My materials during the residency would be the magazines, the streets, the public places and the transportation, feature films and books in which the city is an important location, the local people and my computer to process all these information. After all (at the end of the residency) the output file can be anything in terms of a technique but it will be definitely a visualized text or a textualized vision.
