Tim Udvardi-Lakos. Set: Die Grenze zum Nichts (The Border to nothingness), 2020. Silver, steel wire, powder lacquer.. 6 x 6 x 3 cm each. Photo by: Tim Udvardi-Lakos. The series of nine brooches deals with the theme of the development of all being out of nothing and back into nothing, with the lack of a closed state of being, in the place of which there is a constant cycle of becoming and passing. According to Tim Udvardi-Lakos, from the very beginning of its being, everything carries already its own inescapable non-being within itself. The passing away leaves an emptiness instead of being, which can soon be filled again with a new being. He takes up this theme in the shape of his brooches. These are created in the form of a torus, a bead-like surface with a free space in the middle. For Tim Udvardi-Lakos, the white, polished silver symbolizes an as yet unwritten sheet - nothing. The silver is covered with a thin layer of varnish, which means the boundary to nothing. The powder coating, applied using a specially developed technique, is partly transparent, and elsewhere shows spots of deep black. The black as the densest colour mass represents the traces of being. The transparent lacquer gives the surface a depth in which the fine structure of the silver can be perceived. The brooch pin also forms a circle. Tim Udvardi-Lakos defines his work as influenced by Suprematism and Wabi-Sabi. With his work, he would like to create an awareness of a holistic, connected, cosmic order.

Intro
Tim Udvardi-Lakos is a master craftsman in gold and silversmithing, designer, and martial artist. After his schooling, he became a goldsmith apprentice to Lucia Steimle at Schmuck am Aischbach in Horb am Neckar. Having successfully finished his Bachelor of Arts in Metal Design, at the HAWK, University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hildesheim in 2020 supervised by Professor Melanie Isverding, he proceeded with his studies in the Master of Arts Design at the HAWK.
All being is constantly evolving from — or into — nothingness. Thus, there is no final state, but a constant cycle of becoming and fading. The connection I see is an interdependence of being and nothingness within the whole. Nothingness holds the potential of becoming and therefore is the birthplace of being. When something comes into existence, it holds its own inevitable non-being within itself. It’s fading leaves an emptiness which is soon to be filled again by another being. Being and nothingness are deeply connected as two contradictory polarities of transformation.

The brooches I created are made of Sterling Silver in the shape of the torus. There is an emptiness in the center and within the body. Like a blank canvas, the white, filed silver embodies the nothingness. It is covered by a layer of laquer forming the thin border to nothingness. The laquer is partially transparent or black, using a self-developed technique combining two powder laquers. The deep black represents the traces of being, as it is the densest mass of colour. The transparent laquer enables the observer to discover the texture of the silver and the depth that the laquer gives to the brooches. In a way, the observer is submerged into the artefacts depth. The needle reflects the circular shapes of the torus and enables the artefact to be worn as if it were weightless.

My work is deeply inspired by Wabi Sabi and Suprematism. What I want to convey is a consciousness for a holistic and deeply connected cosmic order, hence we can appreciate nothingness as the fundamental potential for becoming.
