An interpretation of the Bauhaus-Idea in 7 Layers
On the centenary of the Bauhaus School, the AnzenbergerGallery presents an exhibition by Minyó Szert, an Hungarian contemporary artist whose works build on geometric elements and textures, movement, and construction. Drawing from Suprematism, abstraction, and analogue photography, Minyo’s unique interpretation brings form to life at the margins of the figural, inviting the audience to refocus their understandings of space and time.
Minyo first encountered the Bauhaus School and its stylistic hallmarks in the 1960s in the Hungarian embassy in New Delhi, where he was immediately captivated by the cool encounter between metal and textiles, and the light-as-air forms of the furniture. His pictures incorporate painterly gestures and freehand photography in an intense montage of built images and materials; his creative process is a time-limited, analogue photographic performance in the presence of a live audience.
