ON THE HILL

painting performance

Varosliget, Budapest, Budapest – HU

2018

 

360º sessions.
One hill in the Budapest city park. Two artists, both model and observer (painter). White shirts. Two boxes of black and white paint. Two long brushes.

Game rule: Each painter uses the body (face and shirt) of his colleague as a painting support. He paints inspired by the things seen in his cone of vision (lanscape, portrait…) – things that can not be seen by his game partner. The result is a 360 degrees portrait and lanscape study summing two fields of view in one painting performance. Each painter speaks from time to time. Words about the things he sees, about the painting experience itself, words inspired by Alberto Giacometti thoughts on portrait study experiences.
