Ilona Kiss

Ilona Kiss’ work is strongly influenced by dreams and nightmares, collective memory, and the question of place and belonging. The poetic qualities of uncertain situations influence her work as such and connect with traditional genres like Romanticism. Her work is drawn to ambiguity and she is interested in the tension between the familiar and the weird, and the real and the imaginary. Darkness and a sense of sadness surface in her work. Biography Ilona Kiss was born in Zürich, Switzerland and lives in Manchester, UK. She completed an MA in Fine Art at the Manchester School of Art in 2013.
