Cangiante colouring in Ilona Keserü Ilona’s new paintings

I'd follow you blindly – Exploring Space at the Vasarely Museum

4 October 2014

Let me show you this space, this place I found. It's kind of like a tunnel, yet it sometimes feels like a pyramid. Or looks like a pyramid. It depends how you see it. I can show you, actually. Here, take this paper and fold it, now turn it over and fold it again...

Fine art – literature - theatre

25 September 2014

10 works of fine art, 10 literary texts, 10 actors, 2 directors. The outcome: 5 scenes directed with two different approaches. The plays are intriguing as they are. Free association, dramaturgical knacks, secrets and mysteries in the spaces of the Museum of Fine Arts evocative of church interiors. With much humour and free of all pathos. All this brought under one roof, an unforgettable evening awaits visitors: sculptures and paintings seen through the eyes of writers and directors, revealing so far undiscovered, real and recontextualised meanings. One thing is certain: whoever comes to one of our evenings will never be able to look at the featured masterpieces in quite the same way again.
