HOME, SWEET HOME


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
(a magyar változat elérhető itt)

What makes home home? What is home? A room, a flat, a house, a city, a country, a continent etc.? How should we feel about being at home or being away? With our second selection we would like to raise questions that deepen the understanding of what home means to us. 

The pieces revolve around the concept of home from multiple perspectives. What one is supposed to feel about their home country is challenged, but the confusion caused by being away from home is also displayed as well as the identity shaping impact of objects surrounding us at home. 

Szarvas’s video piece presents Hungary as an outdated, old structure of a machine, which reflects on the flawed operation of the country in a humorous way. Murányi’s digital drawing trilogy, entitled ‘Town’, as well as Val’s photos on the stylish, but dilapidated design objects of metro line blue in Budapest also carry criticism as they provide us a realistic picture of life in Hungary, but they simultaneously attach great value to the objects in focus and emphasise their power to create a community for those who are familiar with them. Rubi’s video however addresses the feelings of not belonging, it demonstrates the confusion caused by culture shock.

All the works in the selection reveal a bittersweet attitude one has towards their home and highlight the very fragile nature of the sense of the belonging. The undeniable connection to our collective memory and the unconscious need for being part of a community seem to be unalienable part of one’s life.
