Location: Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, UK

“In her first UK exhibition, artist Ilona Németh will transform the lower gallery space at Modern Art Oxford with her mysterious mud-brick installation, The Wall. Visitors will walk through the partially enclosed structure, which has been constructed on site with 450 mudbricks. First exhibited in 1995 in a disused synagogue, the bricks were made with local mud and straw following a process used by the rural Romany population in Slovakia. For the Oxford exhibition, the bricks are being hand-made in the Chilterns.”
