ILLUSION OF KNOWING


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

The show continuously creates and breaks illusion as the displayed artworks by Zoltán Vadászi and Ákos Rajnai play with the border between perception and reality, materials and thoughts. ‘Illusion of knowing’ aims to raise awareness of how easily ignorance can be hidden by illusion, and therefore how illusion blocks the way of understanding the world. Rajnai’s works emphasise a universal and philosophical perspective, highlighting the necessity of seeing the part to understand the whole. At the same time Vadászi’s works draw attention to the individual’s responsibility in making an attempt to unveil the truth behind the illusion and making decisions accordingly. 

‘Illusion of knowing’ intends to make viewers question what they can see. The technology-based conceptual background, the photographic procedure in the centre of Rajnai’s works and the medical context in Vadászi’s pieces, define a platfrom where questioning communal knowledge may be of paramount importance, and challenge people in a field where their trust is the strongest towards what they perceive and what they are told.
