Knoll Gallery, Budapest - HU



part of ROAD SHOW EAST collective project.

on a proposal of Agnes Hamvas & Hubert Hasler / in co-operation with: Austrian Cultural Forum, Knoll Gallery Budapest, 12-14 Contemporary Gallery Vienna, Michaela Stock Gallery Vienna


Three Act Circle  continues to explore the collective visual perspectives  along side the other projects (Bringing Light 2015, Light Air Wind 2016, Horizons, dLight 2016). The actions of Noima Group started in 2015 are in the center of attention for   Denisa Parizek in what an international future project inspired by Wittgenstein’s theory of language  is concerned.


This time, Noima started the collaborative design from the premise of a shared  purpose-participating together in the design of a circle. The action is made up of three distinct moments each of them with their own design, coreography and specific materials and emphasising on different behavioral shades that often occur in collaborative tasks. Sorin Scurtulescu, Ciprian Bodea, Cosmin Frunteş and Andrei Rosetti have worked again without preestablished simulations and abiding by the set of rules agreed upon at present.


The ROAD SHOW EAST exhibition in Budapest was the first stop in the journey headed East of the two artists Agnes Hamvas & Hubert Hasler through  Europe which seems to lack any shared ideal but at the same time encourages intolerance. The first objective of the two artists coming from different European countries and having different social contexts is the interaction with the same subjects they meet on their journey. The audience present at the Knoll Gallery in Budapest was able to see the first outcome of this interaction, namely, Road Show East exhibition in Budapest. Hamvas and Hasler’s second objective is to explore diversity, common historical roots, language and borders. Travelling along the East side of the European Union and Serbia (not yet in the EU), the artists seized  the opportunity of collecting  contemporary art and taking it cross borders in order to display it at every exhibition-stop along the journey.


The projects invited at the Knoll Gallery include works of Amalie Atkins, Grupul NOIMA, Dragoș Hanciu, Andraš Nagy, Adrijan Karavdić, Jiri Kocica,  Michael Koch,  Siniša Labrović, Bojana Stamenkovic, Marcus Zobl. The event was successfully achieved with the contribution of the Austrian Cultural Forum. The exhibition was organized  in several spaces  and the participating artists managed to combine successfully a great variety of means of expression such as: photography, video, static projection, unconventional material and performatie design.
