Unseen – Chimera-Project Gallery group exhibition

Chimera-Project Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition entitled “Unseen”, opening on May 11, 6pm. Before summer break the gallery presents a selection of latest and new works by its represented artists.

The opening will be accompanied by the launch of Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó’s new catalog “From networks to grids” as a part of the gallery’s artist catalog series.

In 2017 Mark Fridvalszki, Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó, Anu Vahtra and Géza Perneczky had international exposures and important exhibitions, where the artists presented new works and developed their practice. For the end of the seasonal program the gallery shows these works in Budapest for the first time.

Anu Vahtra constantly develops her black and white photo series “Untitled (shadows of others)” made for an exhibition originally held 2013 in Tartu (EE) and Tallinn (EE), where the artist is based. The series was in 2016 successfully presented at ViennaContemporary, this year the extended series went to Zurich as part of a group show at gallery annex14. As she did in Vienna before, Vahtra produced a work that specifically engaged with the exhibition space. This site-specific work entitled “Untitled (A proposal)” is another great example of Vahtra excellence in the photographic reading, interpretation and reproduction of spatial constellations. As this year’s recipient of the ISCP studio grant in New York at Dia Art Foundation Vahtra continues her research in the US.

Mark Fridvalszki, based in Leipzig, where he completes post-gradual studies in art will show his latest work series entitled “This material, in its first stage, is the color (El Lissitzky, 1920)”. The new work incorporates the artist’s latest ideas and concepts about materiality and color and pays tribute to modernism. Still, the three basic compositions on view have their very own references: Fridvalszki’s reduction of form results in “dumb shapes” and “simple principles” that (among others) originate from the artist’s interest in nostalgia - an important leitmotiv and part of the artist’s complex reference system he consistently builds around his works over the past years.

Besides presenting a new work, Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó and the gallery are launching the artist’s catalog, that gathers his artistic interests, starting with early works based on network structures (2013). As Kútvölgyi-Szabó right after the group show prepares an exhibition and a residency in Berlin on invitation by the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin, he now offers insights in his latest engagement with grid systems – a topic, that he follows since his residency in Stuttgart, later elaborated in his solo exhibition at Plusminusnulla Gallery in Slovakia (In between Grids, 2016) and in his well received shows at Labor Gallery, Trafó Gallery and Chimera-Project Gallery.

Géza Perneczky’s works were recently shown in museums and institutions in Bremen, Amsterdam, Krakow, Vienna and now New York. For the occasion of the exhibition Perneczky opens his archive and shows an edited photo series from the early 70ties that was not yet seen either in Budapest or internationally. Our commitment to Perneczky’s work results in reworking the artist’s oeuvre as a whole by highlighting his main work groups at exhibitions and also in the art fair context such as ViennaContemporary.
