I am Kinky Concrete is the debut exhibition of Brooklyn-based Hungarian artist Júlia Standovár’s Kinky Concrete project. A singular, female-driven universe interweaving photography, sculpture, and text, Kinky Concrete maps out Standovár’s exploration of human relationships, intimacy, and sexuality through the rigid yet fluid material of concrete.
Standovár began crafting a visual language through concrete in 2018 while working on Blue Nipple Hills, a multi-layered book framed around sexual taboos based on the artist’s conversations with her mother, Zsuzsanna Bede, a sexual psychologist. The book featured Standovár’s sketches, photographs, and sculptures inspired by their dialogues. After the book’s publication, the concrete objects took on their own life, and the diverse universe of Kinky Concrete was born.
