Mishka


Mishka




CATALOGUE TEXT
Under a black, starry night sky Mishka is gently wooed by the little fox. His heart and thoughts fall under the clever red fellow’s spell until they almost dissolve. His desire becomes the prey. Eszter Jánka sketches her figures only with bright shining lines, uses changing forms to animate their touching interplay. The reduced design and the cosmic soundtrack grow into a mythological story.

André Eckardt
