Brigitta Varadi
Brooklyn, New York, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: As an artist who works predominantly with the biodegradable and renewable medium of pure wool, Varadi communicates in a very direct manner her commitment to sustainability and environmental concerns engaging in projects relating to fracking (‘Talk about Fracking’ was part of the TRADE residency program run jointly by Leitrim and Roscommon County Council in 2011 to voice the current concern of the local people and to raise the issue of hydraulic fracturing) and more recently in the decline of sheep farming in the North West of Ireland. Working with different type of natural fibers and using techniques such as dyeing, felting and sculptural manipulation Varadi searches for pattern and repetition of gesture that relate to the invisible and everyday rituals of working life and the constructed environment. Brigitta's latest project MARKINGS gathers together and explores the different marks used by farmers to identify their sheep in the North West region. Creating a dialogue with farmers and place the project opens on to a broader reflection concerning the signs and forms of identification humans use to identify animals, plants and territories.
