Menyhért Szabó – CROSSOVER

hu | eng

date: 13th – 30th of June 2019.
opening: 7pm 13th of June 2019.
opening speech by: Csaba Róka Kis, artist.

hyperbole – apocalypse – grotesque

The works of Menyhért Szabó can be grouped around these three expressions. First of all, he exaggerates, finding the reality of concepts and phenomena dissatisfactory. He enlarges everything, therefore creating tension. Grotesque, as the juxtaposition of conflicting aesthetic qualities plays an important role in his body of work (this is discernible in his complex way of depiction as well). In addition, apocalypse and the Last Judgment are often paraphrased or straight-up present between the topics in reference to art history.

The expression ‘crossover’, first used by Andrea Berg in the context of Menyhért Szabó’s works, describes his associative-combinative artistic method perfectly, as well as the coherent way of thinking based on his knowledge of the history of arts and culture. Combined with expertise in materials and techniques, this results in a complex and remarkable visual world.

In Menyhért Szabó’s new exhibition in Telep Gallery, instead of his already well known magnified portraits and monumental rubber sculptures, his figurines (heavy with connotations to art history) will be presented.
