ABOUT THE WORK
The series There is Nothing New Under the Sun deals with the rampant individualism that underpins our contemporary social, political, and economic system, and in particular, the environmental impact that it has. Geibl’s aim with the series is not to lecture, or to lay down a strict story, nor to interpret economic issues. She takes the viewer on a journey. There are no clear answers but instead ambiguous questions. Which we have to ask sooner or later as we are not only heirs of the system but also suffer under it.

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Kata Geibl (1989, HU) is a photographer living and working in Budapest. Her work is mainly focused on global issues, capitalism, the Anthropocene, and the ambiguities of the photographic medium.
Coming from a background in Liberal Arts has informed the way she creates her projects. Drawing concepts from Philosophy and Cultural Studies, Geibl steps in with metaphorical images to fill in the gaps where words fall short.

Geibl’s long-standing interest in photography’s ambiguity - how we are trained to treat photographs as evidence while also approaching them with intense suspicion – is palpable throughout her practice. Harnessing this tension, she presents us with the implications of a very real phenomenon without adhering to straight documentary methods that habitually signal truth. Instead, she mixes genres to produce her visual universe - a commentary on our relationship to photography as much as the implications of capitalism.

Her first long-term project entitled Sisyphus premiered at Unseen Amsterdam which was followed by her first solo show in Budapest. She received Paris Photo Carte Blanche Award for the series and in the same year, she was nominated for Palm* Photo Prize. In 2019, she received the József Pécsi Photography Scholarship and was a talent for Futures Platform nominated by Capa Center Budapest. In 2020 she is a Grand Prix Finalist at Fotofestiwal Lodz, won the PHmuseum Vogue Italia Prize and is shortlisted for Palm* Photo Prize.
Kata Geibl is one of the Foam Talents of 2022 and her work is part of the Foam Talent exhibition which is on display until January 18th 2023.
