"PREGNANCY MACHINE Our objects, our inventions support us in the future. We are expanding our technical tools to extend our capabilities to free ourselves from work. But are we able to keep a balance? Can not our machines slowly replace us? Do not we become increasingly unnecessary with our ever-evolving technologies? Can any human ability be replaced by machines? Do we know what to do with our time and energy? Will we find goals instead of our work transferred to machines? With my fictitious machines, I would like to show you the fear that we may, through the self-outsourced capabilities of our machines, develop ourselves backwards, become frustrated and depressed by the lack of real human presence."

She started her studies at the Media Art Institute, Faculty of Arts University of Kaposvár in 2013, from where she graduated in 2016. She is currently doing her masters degree at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, Hungary.

The effects of personality, self-knowledge and personal pasts are the subjects that she has explored over the years. In her series, she raises questions not only about herself but the world around her. In her work, the subject and essence of womanhood is a common topic.

Her photographs deals with 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 photographs, but considered to be forms of body art or performance art. 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 present as the punishment imposed by the Gods for some of the personas of Greek mythology. The visual and artistic processing of her own body and childhood stories, not only helps the creator understand and answer the problems, but it also helps the observed to identify with them. “ /Sándor Áron Károly/
