UNSEEN CREATURES
Mira Dalma Makai’s Solo Exhibition

Tayler Patrick Nicholas
There is a type of beauty at play here similar to the aesthetics of scientific photographs, which alienate and disembody the observed object. This is the “sea change” of the close-up: when what is in front of us turns into “something rich and strange” just by the sheer fact of our proximity. The dichotomy of strangeness and familiarity is also at stake in Makai’s personal iconography, letting every element become identified as something similar to claws, leaves, shells or gems, but never precisely named and thus remaining ambivalent: somewhere between the unknown and the materialised.

DLA INTRO is an annually organised exhibition with the aim of introducing the new Doctor of Liberal Arts students of the University of Pécs, and to exhibit the latest developments in the ongoing endeavours of the upper-graders. DLA INTRO is also an event that hosts the concert of the doctorate institution’s music department, further enriching the exhibition’s scope. As a group exhibition that displays diverse artistic practices, it creates a space of discourse for the question of what art is, its expansive nature - and thus its ungraspable definitions.

Temporality plays a key role in the work of Dávid Utcai. Drawn to the sonic structures of techno and electronic music in general, Utcai investigates how materials create an ambient of visual signs. According to József A. Tillmann techno is one of the contemporary forms of the sublime[1] – that is: an overpowering presence, a loss of self-definition, a combination of beauty and fear.

The exhibition of Florian Lang and Klára Petra Szabó is currently on display at the Austrian Cultural Forum Budapest.

BOOM… CRASH… BANG
Ákos Ezer’s one-man show at Art+Text Budapest Gallery

Patrick Nicholas Tayler
Ákos Ezer’s current exhibition presents the artists’ most recent artworks that depict the reoccurring motif of the stumbling man. The methods which Ezer uses to construct his paintings are partly inspired by the technical tools of kitsch, neo-expressionistic figurative tendencies and digital modelling. These form an inherent part of the discourse surrounding contemporary painting and also define Ezer as an artist deploying multiple visual strategies.

VOLTO

The exhibition “VOLTO” is dedicated to an old, large, at the same time familiar and enigmatic subject: the face. Given the unique, significantly personal, principally singular, unrepeatable, irreplaceable, in-exchangeable character of the face, it is almost inevitably identified with the external appearance of a person, with the image of an individual.
