Description
"EFFECTUM Finding the root causes of our failures is the key to understanding them. That was the reason why I began to observe my recurring negative experiences. I soon came to the conclusion that my constant state of defeat began from my parents’ own childhood traumas, which in turn originated from their parents and so on. My conceptual photography series was inspired by the lingering effects of childhood on my adult personality. While taking the photos I relived painful childhood memories, which allowed me to grow into a healthy, woman emerging into adulthood. An attempt at breaking this inevitable chain of traumatic events began with photographing this series. Even though the series was inspired by my own personal experiences captured in photographs, it speaks to any adult plagued by hurt remaining from their childhood. Familiar characteristics include depression, dependence, insecurity, disassociation, staying at a safe distance and the carrying of burdens, which tend to go unnoticed by many, even those who carry them. Childhood determines who we will become as adults, therefore every parent is responsible for much more than the physical well-being of their child; they are accountable for their child’s spiritual and mental health as well. Disregarding this, unsuccessful marriages, dependence, fears and aggression are all passed on from one generation to the next until one person ceases to do so by making a conscious decision to prevent further harm.

Oxána Sztrehalet is an artist of Russian origin. She graduated from the ”KISKÉPZŐ” Secondary School of Visual Arts in 2011. She started her studies at the Media Art Institue Faculty of Arts University of Kaposvár in 2013, where she graduated in 2016. She is currently a master student at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, Hungary. The effects of personality, self-knowledge and personal past are the subjects that she has embraced over the years. In her series, she raises questions not only about herself but the world around her as well. In her work, the subject of womanhood, the essence of womanhood, is a common topic. Her photographs approach most of the questions from a psychological point of view. In many of her works she uses her own body the create images. These images aren’t just photograps but body arts and performance arts aswell. She says: “The most matter-of-course medium to interpret the world end to express my feelings is my own body” “For the female figure of Oxána Sztrehalet’s work, the pain of the past is as much weight as the punishment imposed by the Gods for some of the personas of Greek mythology. The visual and artistic processing of their own body and childhood stories, their revelation not only helps the creator to understand and answer the problems, but many can identify with them. “ /Sándor Áron Károly/
