Fire in the Museum
Monument To The Rabble
the Monument To The Rabble the idea of the large, rustic stone,
over-quoted and over-refined through correction, is now in our midst as an unarticulated non-memorial. Rather than offering the theatrical
quality that we expect from memorials, it tends to cause confusion. This makes
it a viable candidate to be the symbol of an unconfronted past in general. The
silence that constricts our throats is there in the unmarked, unspeaking shape
that is a ball kneaded out of fear, self-exoneration, and hope. This piece is on
the spot in Budapest where the "rabble" left the head from the toppled statue of
Stalin, and transformed the Free People
appropriated by the ruling power into just The People.

video and sound installation
The exhibition’s title is borrowed from the first station: 5 x 5 matrix through a piece of reflector-touch leters are, so everybody knows your message sent to huge sizes int he air. Satisfying, the ancient desire of people, their size too, from the top of the ”space” to read signs of light. Light will be the words of the great dome of the apse illuminate letters. The only words ont he spot, moments can be seen, their appearance will disappear after a secret, like the name of lovers, written int he sand, or secret message written in invisible ink.

IN THE MUNICIPAL GALLERY 1996-2012
The exhibition and the catalogue, presenting the new acquisitions, is the temporal continuation of the publication, which summarized the collection between 1985-1995. On the other hand, some works of art are also included, though former acquisitions, but they were inventoried in this period. There are some works of art as well, their purchase dated 1995, which got to the collection after the publication of the previous catalogue. While the photos show the works which were on display at the Continuation, New Acquisitions exhibition in September 2012.

painter from France
Intervene as a painter of architectural space, which in itself has expertise, not-yet-seen situation can be created. Because it's not enough just to point out the value of a picture is hung up it is a "nice" wall decor or "beautify" the building. It must search the encounter, the relationship between the two design language. This intersection can sometimes see a new map. If this occurs, indicating the presence of an emotion.

Villő Turcsány Pendulum
The church tower’s time indicator function figures as the conceptual basis of the piece.
The sculptures are suspended at the highest point of the temple space, allowing them to make pendulum movements. Their design represents advancement against the physical drag. The pendulums’ paths develop a moving structure and create a rhythm; they are constantly changing and thus retune the space of the viewer. The installation makes an attempt to change the personal perception of time.
Computer software controls the cycles of the spatial choreography, determining the rhythm and intensity of each of the four sculpture’s movement.
