Dénes Farkas

Dénes Farkas (1974) is an Estonian-Hungarian installation artist and photographer who is able to achieve most in-depth results with extremely simplified means and methods of representation. He often focuses on the relationship between image and text and the social predestination in an individual’s experience. Farkas graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in printmaking (2001, BA) and photography (2003, MA). His recent exhibitions include How-to-calm-yourself-after-seeing-a-dead-body Techniques (2017, Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia, curated by Ingrid Ruudi), When I Close My Eyes (2018, Tartu Art House) and About Dreams That Awaken You (2019, Temnikova & Kasela Gallery). He represented Estonia at the 55th Venice Biennale with the project “Evident in advance” (2013, curated by Adam Budak). He has been artist-in-residence at URRA, Buenos Aires (2018) and received the Annual Award of Estonian Cultural Endowment (2010, 2014 and 2018).
