Disfiguring the unfigurable is an exhibition that has just been opened, it is curated by János Cserháti, IBS Arts Management student. Newsdesk asked him on this occasion.
This is your final project to complete your studies at IBS Arts Management. Do you have experiences in curating? Where did you work earlier, where did you get your experience?
I don't really have a big, first-hand experience in curating. However during my placement year at the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin I got good insight to how an art exhibition comes to life. In Berlin I also saw a lot of great art shows and was helping friends with their projects, but what inspires me the most are my readings.
What are your plans for the future?
I am a rather inconsistent planner when it comes to my future, but I think I'll try to continue studying in London and would love to work on projects (whether mine or of others), read all the books I always planned to read and meet artists who stimulate me.
Could you tell a bit more about the exhibition and the exhibition site?
The project had grown out of the interest of the possibilities of art in an unconventional, crude space. As a substitute to the rather sterile gallery spaces and museum halls we set out to find a venue that allows a more sensible connection between works and also between visitors and the exhibited pieces. In contrary to the museum or the art gallery, which institutions often present art in a confusingly distant fashion, this abandoned boiler hall not only houses the project but becomes a vital part of its purpose.
With the participation of artists Rebecca Brodskis, Adrian Kiss, Nikita Zabelin. Photos are available here!
