Intro
Ink on white paper, intuition, and characters of individuals in different emotional states is what the new exhibition "Freaks, Skulls and a Mad Family" have taken as inspiration. From 27 of January to 20 of February, Platina is hosting three artists that perform with human feelings and perceptions.

Artist list

Doris Betz, Erik Blomqvist, Réka Lörincz
Doris Betz splashes ink on white paper. A few seconds of hectic, wild, and simultaneously calm movements allow an image to arise. The Pareidolia process begins, people recognize faces and figures in abstract forms. Doris Betz transfers the drawings to plastic and behind the eyes of these figures are brooch pins, which enable one to wear a Freak!

Erik Blomqvist also works intuitively. Using blacksmithing as a technique, he lets the powerful material steel take the form of well-known but still unique skull rings. The silver skeletons are like memento mori, they crawl over hands and remind us of our mortality.

Réka Lörincz's portrait series depicts personal characters and individuals in different emotional states. The figures are unique and similar to family members, made of wildly mixed recognizable materials. They can make us highlight hidden qualities, be a part of the family and perhaps they help us on the way to making the invisible visible, the false to become reality, and the strangers to become familiar.


Opening Hours
Tuesday to Friday, 11 am - 6 pm.
Saturday, 11 am - 3 pm.
Only two visitors at a time.
