An exhibition by Zsuzsa Magyari, Tünde Mézes and Ádám Varga
There are two buildings on the Pest side of the Liberty Bridge, which many of us have passed many times. The Toll Houses, which have lost their function, now serve only as transit zone in the city’s daily life. The northern building used to house an exhibition of local history, but in recent years it has been closed to visitors. For three days prior to the forthcoming reopening, the space will be filled with a site-specific exhibition of contemporary artists. Without taking a historical approach, their works reflect on the site’s geography and its former role, as well as on questions of presence and orientation in the space.
Northern Toll House “Vámszedőház”, Budapest
28- 30 July 2022
The exhibition attempts to evoke an in-between state, where nothing has yet been decided. In the face of everyday visual and emotional overload, it appears as a resting point where we can still approach the objects we encounter with sensitivity. The presented group of works use familiar forms from the field of mass media, deprived of their original function and effects. The posters show their backs here, and there is no current news running in the text boxes – the inscriptions on them are just saying: “Something goes here”.

“The exhibition oscillates between real and constructed spaces, between layers of past and future. Some of the exhibited works explore everyday moments and personal experiences through emotional qualities and memories linked to material motifs. Objects act as mediators between different ages and persons, thus the associations and emotions associated with them can be recalled and evoked by the individual at any time.”

The thesis of the exhibition is the possible existence of another endeavour before or parallel with the internet. According to that, relying on the recipient’s knowledge and affinity, it could be possible to transfer massive data by sending short, encoded messages. As though after reading an epigraph, we knew the content of the whole book. The presented interior is the scene of this wrecked research, an abandoned laboratory around halfway from a library to a server-room.

“The artists’ shared endeavour to “fill the space”, the dialogues between the individual artworks, and the ways in which the works reflect on the trio of beholder-artwork-space create links among the compositions and constitute the theme of the exhibition.”

“The aimlessness played a role while these objects were created – so the creation itself became their aim. These are ‘relatives’ of everyday things, which have lost their function and their original meaning. The insignificant, almost rubbish-like item obtains new possible interpretations through the gesture of emphasis and copying.”
Exhibition opening performed by Márton Simon, poet, slammer.

“The central piece of the exhibition is a collection of objects, which is a reinterpretation of a Japanese mattress advertisement. The viewpoint is the surplus produced by the consumer society. Using a slice of ‘existing and realistic’ the artist produces a fictitious product that is deprived of all of its functions. Tünde Mézes examines existing objects based on the characteristics of the artworks.”
