Black-and-white

Geschrieben von: Blogger In: Marcell

“Black-and-white” relies on the closing scene of Gyula Gazdag’s 1971 film, The Whistling Cobblestone (Sípoló macskakő), in which the artist’s paternal grand-father appeared as an extra. We can see a man on a train, who now looks in our eyes, now stares in front of him with eyes lowered. The video loop reflects the artist’s relation to, as well as questions and doubts about, his family and past, all the ambivalence and tension that exists between things experienced and known, between reason and sentiment.
