The language of the presentation is Hungarian, but all visitors are welcome.

The recent exhibition of Levente Herman (born in 1976, Târgu-Mureș/RO), entitled Illusion, mostly consists of large, 180x200 cm canvases. In the first hall of the Várfok Gallery, the visitors could see Herman’s monumental installation which was made last summer (and remade recently), within the framework of the summer workshop of the XII. Steel Sculptural Symposium (Kecskemét/HU). Related to the industrial thematic of the workshop, industrial objects – taken out from their original context – appear on the canvases which are set up next to each other, considering the perspective. This installation of the paintings creates an inner, walkable sacred space, where a bread made of iron is placed. In the other hall of the Gallery, besides a monumental floating canvas, paintings will be on view, which are connected by the collective term of illusion. The illusion, a psychological process, during which we misconceive the stimuli from the reality, so in our mind a false image come to existence. The same thing happens when the unique, self-sufficient artworks are put next to each other and hereby that new context, their message also changes.
At the season-opening exhibition of the Várfok Project Room, a promising young talent, Anna Nemes (born in 1989, Budapest/H) will exhibit her works. Despite her young age, Nemes – who graduated in 2014 from the Painting Department of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in the class of Imre Bukta – has had a number of individual and several group exhibitions.
The main focus of her artistic interest is the human body. While on her earlier paintings disabled people, body builders, her relatives, or animals were presented, on her recent paintings exhibited at the Várfok Project Room her closest friends and family, or even herself and her body also appear – thus, we can see lying nude figures or self-portraits frozen into different grimaces on the walls. The figures are taken out of their surroundings and contexts, thus strengthening the reflexive attitude, delving deeper into the human psyche.
