CASTLE GARDEN BAZAAR - SUBJECTUM - Variations for Portraiture / Contemporary Hungarian Photography

The Castle Garden Bazaar – 1013 Budapest, Ybl Miklós tér 2-6.
SUBJECTUM / Contemporary Hungarian Photography
2017. 08.04. – 31.05.
Opening hours: Tuesday-Sunday 12.00-18.00

Portraits made photography a serious art medium in the 19th century. As it became possible to fix the human presence on photosensitive materials, a new era began in history. Photos of human faces and figures completely changed how people perceive themselves and others. It turned the conventional visual depiction on its head and it made photography a professional vocation.
Our relation to portraiture as models, photographers, art lovers, scientists and historians continuously changed and developed throughout the nearly 200-year-history of photography. Portrait history was marked by both calmer golden ages and chaotic artistic crises from its beginning in 1839 until today, but the importance of human presence in pictures was never questioned. Nowadays, courtesy of electronic devices, billions of portraits and self-portraits are made, which makes it seem ever more important to take a closer look at the human presence in contemporary Hungarian photography. Budapest Photo Festival creates a comprehensive exhibition every year around a topic, showing its relevance to the local photographers. With Szubjektum, we examined the contemporary approaches to portraiture.
Self-portraits, portraits, personality portraits and genres: they search for the possibilities of portraiture through the dilemma of objectivity-subjectivity, personality-impersonality; and they approach the depiction of the individual along personal connections and relations. It can appear both as novelistic reinterpretations or as successors of traditional portrait paintings; but the portraits that are bestowed with symbols placed in their own environment – such as the series about photographers – can also suggest a narrative beyond a given composition. The pictures in the exhibition tell stories of fate, state of mind – also in the model-photographer relation-, milieu, subcultures and last but not least (as with dual portraits) the visual depiction of time. Meanwhile the images based on the physiognomy of the face, or the self-portraits made with unusual techniques, formats and in sometimes unusual environments study the layers of personality. 
The exhibition is represented by the cooporation of the Budapest Spring Festival.

It may take several decades for visions of urban planners to be confirmed or refuted. Students of photography MA program seek answers to the question whether we are able to abandon the environment of our socialization? Do new messages filter through ingrained automatisms? Is there more than just individual ambitions, economic interests, political and ideological games to validate the need for change? How does an authoritarian redesign of the environment alter and affect its inhabitants?

Opening hours: Monday-Friday 12.00-18.00

What is reality? What is reality for you? How is that subjective reality for each and every individual? The artists of the Faur Zsófi Gallery are looking for the answer to these questions. Although different motives are emphasized in the work of each and every artist, they all have found the common truth through the medium of photography, in which they can create, and express themselves. The blur of the urban space, the vacant big cities, the shape of the lying animals in the driving mirror and the moments with carved surface belong to this accentuated reality. These motives connect, mirror and project to each other.

The photographs presented in Snake Charmer reveal manifestations of these double visions evoking a third space. To see it, the viewer must dedicate strong attention to both the representation and the abstraction at the same time.

K11 Art and Cultural Centre - Mariya Kozhanova: Declared Detachment

Mariya Kozhanova - Defender (2013)K11 Art and Cultural Centre – 1075 Budapest, Király utca 11. 
Mariya Kozhanova: Declared Detachment
2017. April 04 – 2017 May 07
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 10:00 to 18:00 pm

The portraits of the series “Declared Detachment” show young people who live in times when Russian society and its structures so far seem to fall apart. A time of change. The lack of trust in society, the lack of perspective and a sometimes lacking basis for their own identity – all this let that young people use the identities of different cultures and they draw from the repertoire of popular pop cultures in order to be part of a group. An example of this is the Japanese “Cosplay”, a term made up of costume and play. In this world of anime, manga, games or film heroes with their attractive, colorful figures, it is possible to reinvent themselves and to take a borrowed identity. An attempt to build an illusory world on top of daily life routines.

The exhibition realised in a cooperation between the K11 Art and Cultural Centre and the Foundation for Contemporary Art.

Schild Tamás – Nellys

K11 Art and Cultural Centre – 1075 Budapest, Király utca 11. 
Schild Tamás: Nellys
2017. April 04 – 2017 May 07
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 10:00 to 18:00 pm
An essay on longing. Not on longing per se, perhaps just on this side of longing. Tamás Schild is not into photojournalism when he follows through the life of a roma family in Southern Hungary. He is into the whirling of emotions; the silence and enthusiasm; the desire and the disillusionment. The intense moments that permeate the life of this small community. The boundaries of wholesomeness of life are elsewhere than in the life of the viewer. Probably it is for this very reason that  they are so strong imperatives to face ourselves. 

The exhibition realised in a cooperation between the K11 Art and Cultural Centre and the Foundation for Contemporary Art.

FORGÁCS Péter – Stories of Random Bodies
2017.03.08. – 04.28.
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Friday 12.00-18.00

The stories of random bodies are about banal image-statuses, might reflect the spectators seeking eye, those, who look at and see the other, or might not. The image itself is the myth and a fabricated error. The provoking, the waiver, or the forbidden look and the cancelled image are the proof: offender and witness are visible. It is the stutter, the soprano, the coda of body images.

Opening hours: Tuesday – Friday 11.00 – 18.00

Individual and collective identities are strongly influenced by the memory of places and objects. Even though these can be transformed or not in evidence anymore, cannot be erased completely. Exhibition presents series of photographs not only in the traditional form, but accompanied by compound works, where pictures were applied just as a starting point for non-linear narration based on mixed media objects. Here private archeology comes to the voice by recreating and mapping artefacts, revisiting local history and re-thinking regional contexts of Central-Eastern Europe, coming to the point, when questions about identity need more complex answers.
