Shrouded in fog and blanketed with endless snow, winter landscapes of Hungary are astoundingly silent and still.
This photographic exhibition features a selection of works by Magda Ciszewska-Rząsa which were created during her stay in Zemplen, Hungary in 2010-11. The cycle presents winter landscapes near the town of Tokaj, including the confluence of the rivers Tisza and Bodrog, the slopes of Mount Tokaj, and nearby villages and fields. The artist had visited Hungary many times in the summer, until she decided to go there in the winter – a visit which proved both surprising and inspiring. “For the first time in my life, I visited my little paradise in winter, and found the country asleep, enveloped in damp hoarfrost, silent and still,” said the artist.
