Exhibition showcases four Hungarian artists

THE exhibition “When Art Comes to Life,” marking the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Hungary and China, is underway at the Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art through October 10.

Sixty-nine photographs and paintings by four Hungarian artists are on show.

They not only highlight the unique creative inspiration and rich artistic expression of Hungarian contemporary artists, but also fully display the urban experience and cultural features of Hungary to the Chinese public.

Barakonyi Zsombor’s paintings capture the cosmopolitan quality and the peculiar timelessness of urban living. Using spray paint, blades and rubber rollers on wooden boards, rather than traditional brush on canvases, he has created a striking visual effect from a superimposition of paint layers.

Using images of her own, Borsi Flora welcomes you to enter her abstract and surreal world of photography that is thematically focused on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams.

In “Animeyed,” she created a series of self-portraits with various animals, in a way that one eye is replaced by an animal eye.

Ban Sarolta started her career as a jewelry designer and later discovered the digital world.

A photoshop master, she creates images that come from a combination of different elements in everyday life. Her works capture the emotional sensitivity of the younger generation, revealing how hard it is to cope with life in the real world.

From dark-red lipstick on a smoking grandma’s puckered mouth to light-blue waves swirling around saggy swimmers, Goldson Marcus’s works perfectly interpret and present life in Budapest — “all the nuances that really make Budapest Budapest,” commented Zeng Yulan, curator of the museum.

In addition animation and sound create a multiple visual and auditory experiences for visitors. When the audience enters into the exhibition, it feels like they are entering the colorful life of Hungary.
