Commissioner: Julia Fabényi
Curator: Mónika Zsikla
Exhibitor: Zsófia Keresztes


Zsófia Keresztes’ exhibition deals with the stages in one’s search for identity. This concept reaches back to Arthur Schopenhauer’s porcupine dilemma but, moving on from this, it takes as its associative starting point an episode from Antal Szerb’s 1937 novel Journey by Moonlight, used by the artist as a poetic analogy. The exhibition, in four units, explores both the ambivalent relationship between past / present and future and the stages by which people map out their own identity. Liberated in each other’s reflection from the burdens of common and individual experiences, the mutually referenced body fragments – separate yet existing as one community – attempt to achieve their final form.
