Christalena Hughmanick's Solo Exhibition, Faur Zsófi Gallery
Now on until 21 June. Christalena Hughmanick is an artist working in textiles, sculpture, and performance. She received her Masters In Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012 where she is currently a Lecturer in the Fiber and Material Studies Department.

 She is currently on a Fulbright Fellowship for the 2018-19 academic year as a resident Lecturer & Researcher at the Moholy-Nagy Művészeti Egyetem in Budapest, Hungary.

In addition, she received an Individual Assistance Grant from the US State Department to complete a public quilt making project in Hungary during the Summer of 2019.

Rope a necklace to my tongue showcases a selection of quilted blankets created by Christalena Hughmanick.

Hughmanick came upon the technique of quilt-making in her birthplace, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, a region famous for its Amish communities and their skillful patchwork tradition.

She utilizes this craft history to ask how a search for personal identity through mysticism and hand making can compact a viewer’s notion of time.
