Sándor RÁCMOLNÁR: Ephemeral 55 September 04, 2015 - October 03, 2015

The next episode of the 25 years old Várfok Gallery’s Jubilee Exhibition programme series is Sándor Rácmolnár’s Ephemeral 55 solo exhibition in the Várfok Project Room, which will be celebrating the artist’s 55th birthday.

Sándor Rácmolnár (Miskolc, 1960) graduated in printmaking at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in 1987. In 1999 he received the Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Rome, in 2002 he gained an artist residence at the Cité des Arts in Paris. As an acknowledgement of his work he was honored with the Munkácsy Mihály Prize in 2003, and the XXIV. National Graphics Biennale Grand Prize in Miskolc in 2008. He has been college associate professor of the Visual Representation Department at the University of Applied Sciences Budapest since 2010.

Creating in several graphic genres, Rácmolnár’s art can be characterized by intense voice, his determinative element is the construction from themes and objects of popular and folk culture, graffiti, adverts, evoking the design language of posters, comic-like story telling, reinterpretation of texts and motifs taken out from their original context, behind which there is the investigation of the formal complexity of paper.

The title of the show – and its thematic as well – refer to the dichotomy of time’s subjectivity and objectivity. Number 55 defines age with lexical density, and the word ephemeral indicates transience and temporality, which can be interpreted as such a relative time range, where memories, learning, system of affairs created by inspiration can be displayed as a creative universe deviating from everyday logic – in our given case in the form of fine art.

The paperworks displayed at the Várfok Project Room give an insight into Rácmolnár’s creative use of material and ironic attitude, his characteristically naive drawing manner amplifies the feeling of nostalgia, making the exhibition a personal evocation of past and its summary.
