MÁRK FRIDVALSZKI WORKS 21–22: AN ARCHEO-FUTUROLOGICAL TRANSLATION OF A FUTURELESS PRESENT
Merging various sources from pop- and counter-culture, futuristic design, psychedelia, jazz and acid house, Márk Fridvalszki’s works seek to create a temporal spiral between the late modern era filled with utopian energies and our futureless present.
Márk Fridvalszki’s exhibition Works 21–22 presents his recent paintings and graphics focusing on a variety of topics such as Acid, UFO, cosmology, and the conjure of lost futures and their lost spirits. A Berlin-based visual artist, Fridvalszki’s interest can be described as ”archeo-futurological,” since his collages, paintings, prints and installations consist of cultural sediments of our lost collective futurities. Merging various sources from pop- and counter-culture, futuristic design, psychedelia, jazz and acid house, his works seek to create a temporal spiral between the late modern era filled with utopian energies and our futureless present.
The exhibition is open for visitors till the 20th of April in Horizont
