Bálint Rádóczy: Dirty Work
The envelope-pushing performance/installation Dirty Work prompts reflection and self-reflection while presenting a covert criticism of consumer society, the specific medium, and the elitist art-market. According to the creative statement of Bálint Rádóczy, “Waste has an ability to mirror human states of mind, reflect upon the nature of knowledge, logic, ethics, epistemology, transience, continuity, and imperfections. What I do is not criticism. I just make this aspect of our civilization visible by showing the other side of the coin, which in turn may provide its own criticism.”
