In Hungarian, the word for scale is lépték, which has an etymological origin in the word lép, meaning ‘to step’. Thus, the first group of works presented in the New Budapest Gallery relates to our own bodies as units of measurement. This is followed by explorations of the relationship of size to the home, the private sphere and objects of everyday use, leading to depictions of our broader environment, cities and landscapes and, eventually, the universe. Abstract, nonfigurative works are presented in a separate section. In addition to these sub-themes, certain techniques (such as print reproduction processes) have also been given particular attention: in these cases, it is the restrictions inherent in the techniques themselves that make sizes which deviate from the customary particularly striking.
