The main organising principle of Imre Bak’s latest series is the painted frame. Cut at a 45 degree angle, one of the stripes in the bicolour band resembling a meander or labyrinth reminiscent of the artist’s work from the early 1980s, present in each painting of the series, endows the images with a depth evoking axonometric three-dimensional rendering, further reinforced by rectangles of different colour intensity. As Dávid Fehér also points out in his analysis of the series, the paintings depicting relations of light and space inquire into the relation of representation and abstraction.... more >> The main organising principle of Imre Bak’s latest series is the painted frame.

The new exhibition of acb NA focuses on – mostly little known – works, which reflect the relationship to the erotic culture of the Hungarian underground before 1989. The particular language appearing in the presented photographs, visual poems and a piece of painting, prooves that the neo-avantgarde not only recaptured the notion of the body, but also critically reflected on it and turned to it as the subject of visual explorations. As an important emphasis of the exhibition, the traditional, male-dominated discourses are counterpointed with alternatives offered by women artists, who, by aspiring to create an own usage of language, marked the appearance of a feminism-inspired approach.
