INTENTIONAL BLINDNESS II.

2021   I   painted ceramic, salt   I   20 x 37 x 21 cm

My work Intentional Blindness presents a simple encounter during a winter dog walk, in which a walker meets a janitor salting the sidewalk.

The work deals with intentional blindness, our daily individual choices, and their consequences for the individual and the community; all of which, in given cases and seen from a distance, can be translated into the theme of the depreciation of our built and natural environment.

The title of my artwork was inspired by Father Feri Pál’s series of lectures of the same title on our conscious and unconscious blindness in all areas of our lives.

TOGETHER IN A PORTABLE TOILET

2016   I   painted ceramic   I    49 x 45 x 29 cm

This is about a hot, shameless, obscene day and a "couple" that is way too underage.

GIRL WATCHING AN ANT / ON THE LEDGE

2016   I   painted ceramic   I   25 x 17 x 26 cm

In this work, an ant (that naturally lives in colonies) is wandering around alone from wall-to-wall (from foot-to-foot). It marches to and fro tireless on a ledge without realising that it's running around in circles.

THE PET KEPT FOR THE SAKE OF DELIGHT

2016   I   painted ceramic   I   8,5 x 16 x 14 cm

My work "The pet kept for the sake of delight" was called into existance by meditating upon the extinction of instinctual actions in life.

I have a strange but relevant memory about my grandparents' passion for collecting porcelain figurines and the way they took care of them. I have a paralell feeling about the multiplying genre-statues in the city (Budapest). I am interested by their utterly clear and easily consumable meaning and their popularity.

In this series I applied the genre-statues' simple narrative that aspire to be pretty, but put aside the (sometimes) sugary, light topic and replaced it with my personal experiences that impelled me to think and contemplate this year.
