Her newest series (Living) room shows the living room of a young art collector and his girlfriend. A fire raged in the kitchen of the newly-occupied home, making the adjoining room uninhabitable in a short time.
With the charcoal walls and the details on them, Panyigay constructed new spaces in her photography in which you could easily lose your orientation. You can’t exactly imagine the size of the spaces and whether they offer a way out. It resonates with the feeling the house owner had when he woke up in the middle of the night because of the heat, walked downstairs and got completely disoriented by smoke. Panic and oppression, but also detached from life and reality.
