White Lies

This installation was my endexam at Rietveld Academie in 2009, and a replica has been exhibited in The Curious Matter exhibition in 2010
It was originally installed in a 12m high staircase, stairs going around it. 3 horizontally placed half transparent glass plates with 3 meters distance from each other and the ground. The three glass plates hung from metal threads that were attached to the roof.
The plates filled the gap of the stairs almost fully.

On each plate there is a canon of 10 minutes video loop. It was picturing water falling through the screens.
This work was scaled, timed and directed in such a way, to give a strange bodily sensation to the spectator who is in the staircase, or under the installation, which wouldn’t resolve itself, until the viewer concluded: this is water falling up, or this is a representation of water.
This is an experiment made by modelling reality with 2 dimensional layers, and reflection on the philosophy of Henry Bergson on spinal and cortical reactions.

Nude

This is a two-screen projection loop of 4′ 07″.
These images show the two screens (left and right) as one image, in even distances from the viewer.
The two projections are timed together.
I was researching to find a way to compare two female bodies without sexual or rivalizing connotations.
Each screen pictures two female forms, one as a positive form and one as a negative.
I positioned my models in classic painterly poses of picturing nudity, and asked them to breathe calmly.
Finally I ended up in landscape.

(The models are not credited here due to their own wish)

Drop, Yet Sea

This piece is meant to create conversation between the personal point of view and the opinion formed as a society.

As light is effecting differently accompanied or opposed by other lights, so does the individual opinion-forming in reflexion of more different morals. (An expression that well captures it in Hungarian language to picture something in a different light, means to show another point of view on a phenomenon). Opinion of the individual accompanied can grade polarised, radicalised, or even antagonistic.

Disappearance

Video installation seen through a peeping hole in a red cupboard (2007).

This was my first green screen project. It is a visual poem for all of us who dress away our character every morning and having done so, getting into the right drawer.
