Opening speech by:
The Budapest Gallery’s summer exhibition, which concludes this academic year, will present the work of four young artists. The artists’ shared endeavour to “fill the space”, the dialogues between the individual artworks, and the ways in which the works reflect on the trio of beholder-artwork-space create links among the compositions and constitute the theme of the exhibition. Based on everyday objects and phenomena, the artists reflect on experiences and processes such as material transformation in the course of copying, conflicts between functionality and loss of function, the process of a loss of meaning, and the flexibility inherent in continuous formation. A recurring motif of these compositions is the typographic system of digital text editing. However, a coherent narrative cannot be deciphered from the ensemble of motif-systems. Meaning comes into being among and between the works in the physical and discursive spaces around the objects.
