In her work, Kíra Dorottya Krász explores the interplay of the physical properties of photography: the combined effect of form and material. She blends the photographic techniques of her analogue images with drawing, cut-outs, montage and layering.

‘The title, Thought after Taught, refers to ideas that spring from knowledge acquired. To the starting point from which we set out into the world with a heavy baggage and little knowledge, and while we left some of it behind, we gathered even more.

These images stem from simple thoughts, and were captured before awareness set in, and it was only during the printing that I registered their real function. […]

The first phase in the train of thought is the photograph, but no single image remains a “photo” in itself. Small drawings are added, existing graphic art is revised, and thus new content arises. The harmony is now formal, now content-related. Just as we reuse and reassess old foundations, I have recycled pages from old books, discarded formulae and outdated maps from atlases.

I worked in layers, so that I could overwrite the material I had previously learnt (whether it be a textbook, a notebook, a yellowed note) with the experience I gained later.’ Dorottya Kíra Krász
