Eszter Salamon is an artist, choreographer, and performer, pursuing her PhD at the National Academy of the Arts, KHiO, Oslo. She uses choreography as an activating and organizing agency between various media, such as image, sound, music, text, voice, bodily movement and actions. Her works evolve through various formats and aesthetics, methodologies and poetics, and implement wide spectrum of expressions.
While at Amant Siena, Salamon will write a section of her book Slow Works (2001-2021) as part of her PhD Fellowship at KHiO, Oslo. Reflecting her interest in temporal elongation and slowness in choreography, the book gives insight into initial ideas and choreographic problems that reflect conceptual and poetic frames of speculation.
Since 2001, Salamon has created solo and large scale works worldwide in performing arts venues and museums, including Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; MoMA, New York; Kunstinstituut Melly, Rotterdam; Foundation Cartier, Paris; Serralves Foundation, Porto; Museum der Moderne Salzburg; Akademie der Künste Berlin and Villa Empain - Boghossian Foundation, Brussels. Her exhibition Eszter Salamon 1949 was presented in 2014 at Jeu de Paume in Paris. She won the Evens Art Prize in 2019 and she was the recipient of La Vie Bonne call for projects by Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris and AWARE: Archive of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions, 2020.
