Szilvia Mucsy: Best Regards

Vernissage: September 28, 2022, 6pm

In her work evoking the world of postcards, Szilvia Mucsy presents text and image together, building on their interplay in each case: while the two could be interpreted independently, they also reciprocally interfere with one another. The moments captured in these photos belong to the silence of the world; the short, one-line texts accompanying them give direction to their interpretation. However, the texts do not limit the possibilities of interpretation, rather they mold them. It is a playful game of textual and visual narratives and their coequal status.

Tamas Dezsö: Hypothesis: Everything is Leaf

Until December 23, 2022

In his latest work Tamas Dezsö investigates the personal identity of all living creatures, including humans. What is the mysterious and inexplicable link that connects personalities of all living entities throughout life? We are in constant change physically: similarly to other living beings, almost all molecules of a human body turn into new ones continuously. We are also in constant transformation intellectually: our way of thinking changes throughout our whole life. So what, then, is identity? Studying the issues of identity, Tamas Dezsö finds the metaphor of human existence in plants, which are built up from the same material and similar structures as ourselves.

Hans van der Meer: Minor Mysteries

Until December 23, 2022

Hans van der Meer is a storyteller in images and words. His approach is based on an inquisitive look and a sharp sense of observation, in which empathy, social involvement, and a strong sense of humour and absurdity go hand in hand. The starting point of the exhibition Minor Mysteries is the series of street photographs that Van der Meer shot in 1985-86 in Budapest. A predominantly new selection from these works is presented alongside a selection of photographs, videos, and texts from later projects, offering a rich and complex picture of Van der Meer’s oeuvre up to today.
