Pearl is a new body of work by Mónika Bögyös, created while on residency at A4 Sounds. She has created numerous intricate textile pieces by reusing and reworking images from notebooks from her time as a student. Each work is inspired by her everyday life, and by her experiences during her three-month residency.

Mónika Bögyös has employed a phenomenally wide range of materials, including unprimed canvas, textiles, embroidery threads, felt, ink pencils, ink blocks, photographs, unbleached muslin, buttons, etching, prints, human hair, shells, stones, oil paint, glass wax, pearls and glass. These materials substantially transform and bring new life to previous work, which would otherwise have been stored away, forgotten and subject to the erasures of time. 

Gracefully weaving together contrasting styles and disparate approaches to her materials and subjects, Mónika brings the viewer on a playful and fantastical journey, akin to exploring a symbolic taxonomy of an otherworldly flora, a ritual semiotics of healing, wellbeing, connection and care. Individual details almost seem to dance forth from the fabric, with a dynamic interplay of vibrant colours between pieces. Each piece is completely different to the next, but with a profusive organicism throughout, and all are imbued with her truly individual style and approach to textiles and sculpture.
