'Everything is personal. Even if the title of a picture doesn't show it, or the details seem unfamiliar. At the most, the work has succeeded in concealing itself.'
Zsuzsi Csiszér


Through the exhibitions opening at the Kiscelli Museum (Budapest) on March 31st and at Várfok Gallery the next day, on April 1st, we can discover the next stages of Zsuzsi Csiszér’s (1972, Veszrpém / H) self-exploring journey. The two exhibitions present from two different sides the actual problematics occupying the artist. Whilst the visitors in the Museum’s Templespace will encounter a huge installation specially made there, the exhibition space in Várfok Gallery will be filled with her grandiose, colorful painted collages, photographs, unusual chopping boards and her very particular „diary”. The artist progresses on paths made of details and different layers, documentating through her works the stages of her self-analysing process: that is one of the reasons why the exhibition is entitled Diary. Csiszér – by ’tearing open’ her reality - wants to explore connections by searching in her memories, feelings. She expresses this way that usually, we only detect one side of reality, but with time, things will always appear in very different aspects and dimensions.
The train is a recurring motive in her newest pictures. This engine serving public transportation symbolises in her work the crossing of emotional and intellectual fields, that is the journey reaching our very deepest thoughts. But this engine is also presuming a journey spent in common with others. That is, we not only see the results of a personal dive but the impacts of a universal one too, through which Csiszér analyses how the common subconscious can integrate our personal thoughts, how strongly the community is capable of affecting our individual conscience and way of seeing.
As a woman painter, Csiszér approaches these matters from a feminine perspective, translated within the exhibition by her ’conceptual cutting boards’ – the casual ’woman accessories’ of everydays -, here carriers of chopped, abstract thoughts. Csiszér’s photographs constitute another exciting ensemble. The different figures and locations incarnating memories from the past are ’overwritten’ with broidery and paint patches: the artist is this way destroying the totemistic significance of photography, usually considered as a guardian of past, and also, she is demarcating her own, autonomous world from the deposits of ancient times. Sithence, we are what we think at a given instant. The next moment, we try to conceive what happened just before.
    The personal intonation of the exhibition is intensified by the artist’s „diary”. This big sized ’paper-rouleau’ reveals and analyses the emotions and thoughts of Csiszér concerning painting, letting the visitor enter her privacy.
