BLURRING BOUNDARIES


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
(a magyar változat elérhető itt)


The artworks included in MyExhibition3 reflect on the blurring boundaries between the inside and outside worlds. To merge and separate these worlds may be a conscious play of the mind, a modelling of an alternative reality, but it may also be a fictitious, dreamlike state in which motives of the inside and the outside are interchangeable and the two realities appear in each other. Contemplating on the impacts of soul and the environment, consciousness and unconsciousness, real and imagined on each other may be a method to express criticism, to wind down, to enhance self-awareness or to deny reality. Our present selection shows various methods of the above used. 

Martinkó’s video trilogy entitled ‘Planes of Reality’ plays with the differences between staged and actual realities and tricks the viewer by making it impossible to apply categories ‘real’ or ‘unbelievable’ when the viewer analyzing the works. As a result, the video displaying reality is not at all less unbelievable or more believable than the video shot on stage. Piti in his series ‘Terra’, however, does not address the differences between real and fictitious, but the relationship between them. He creates new space by merging the two.

In contrast with Martinkó’s and Piti’s artworks the videos by Szarvas and Rubi do not examine the boundaries between reality and the fictive world, but manipulate reality on purpose. Szarvas constructs his video with the use of artworks and real places, and through the multiple layers used in the video he provides to-the-point and ironic criticism on a phenomenon: by manipulating the reality of the artworks he reflects on the manipulation of historic memory. In Rubi’s video an animated image on a prison’s wall strengthens what function the image originally played there. The abstract presentation of freedom in the reality if its environment, which is deprived of freedom, becomes reality in the video, as the narrative takes place there and not in the space of the prison.

Our present MyExhibition focuses on the power of the mind, on how the human brain is able to modify reality unconsciously or on purpose. This power may lead to mental freedom, but to the manipulation of thinking as well. The artists of the pieces selected for this online exhibition revolve around these processes in their works that are also created through manipulation, which creates a meta-level in them.
