Intro
'As a word, art is perceived as a product, a noun, an object. In English, Hungarian, German and Italian there is no verb for “art”, instead concentrating on made results rather than the process of doing it.'

'Kontrapunkt wants to show artists in their liminal thinking and doing as they interrogate their boundaries, as they explore and exploit imbalance, as they deconstruct in order to construct, as they struggle through chaos in order to seek a new equilibrium. 
…when a group of distinct voices comes together, the energy of their polyphony has the power to multiply, reverberate and resonate…where the complex potential of the intersecting beams is always stronger than that of its individual rays.' - Lieta Marziali

Artist list

Rita Besnyoi, Vice Gabor, Lieta Marziali, Luca Sagi, Juergen Veit
Kontrapunkt showed a sensitive collection of recent works of five artists working in Budapest, Berlin, Glasgow and on the shore of England,  during Budapest Jewelry Week 2022. Their pieces are fueled by inner conflicts and self-development, as much as common inspirations and reflecting on each other's thoughts. Having online meetings week by week through the period of preparation gave the opportunity to discuss motivations, methods of different creative processes and questions. 


On the main day of 17. September at 17h, the gallery and the artists hosted a studio talk, where they were trying to make visible the process of this collaboration through a cross-interview, asking relevant questions to each other. This could give a closer perspective of each project but also helps to understand the diversity of the group, or how individual melodies came to form a kontrapunkt at the end. 


The exhibition Kontrapunkt is sponsored by the NKA, Hungary.
