Mari Mészàros comes from Hungary. She mainly deals with female bodies and faces, mostly fragments of bodies bearing visible marks of life. Mari Mészàros is interested more in the part carrying the wholeness, rather than in the wholeness of a body itself. “I turn human bodies into objects, a future documentation of their current existence. I therefore use glass because it is as frail as man and as strong as mankind”, the artist explains. Her impressive works hang on the wall or stand freely in the room. She uses coloured glass in light shades, sometimes greenish or aubergine coloured. First she creates a plaster impression of the body from which she then makes her glass sculpture using fusion technique, where glass is melted on a plaster-fireclay mould. Glassy bodies, fine and delicate, yet strong and compact.
