Estopia Art Gallery Lugano is pleased to present the exhibition Queen of Desire, Edith Torony’s first solo show in Switzerland.
Showcasing a new series created during the pandemic, the exhibition unfolds around desire as main concept, while inviting the viewer to take an unsettling journey around some of the most recognizable patterns that form the landmarks of our post-industrial contemporary society.
With surrealist and pop art references and soft inserts that recall comic art, Edith Torony has all the premises to add a new perspective on the visual depiction of today’s consumerist patterns.
Edith Torony was born in 1988 in Timișoara, Romania, where she lives and works. She graduated in Painting from the Faculty of Arts and Design, West University of Timișoara. She earned her MA in the same field in 2012. She is a member of the Romanian Union of Artists, Timisoara branch, since 2011. She has presented her works in solo shows such as Hybrid Playground, Estopia Art Gallery, Bucharest, 2019; Personal Mythologies, Forma Gallery, Deva, 2019; The Waste Land, Pygmalion Gallery, Timișoara, Junkyard Symphony, Senso Gallery, Bucharest, in 2018; Playing Emptiness, Zid Gallery, Timișoara, in 2016, among others.
Curator: Claudio Scorretti
