The SETUP exhibition organized by Kristóf Szabó – KristofLab examines the impacts of technology and interactivity on visual arts. The exhibition will be opened on October 11 in MAMŰ Gallery. The works of the artists featured in the exhibition have already been showcased around the world, from Tokyo to Budapest and were displayed in renowned Hungarian art centers as the Art Quarter Budapest, Ludwig Museum, Modem, Budapest Hall of Art and Trafó.
Newer and newer tendencies can be observed in the continuously spreading interactivity. We are talking about works that create a connection with the audience itself, they attract them into their own space or into the creative process. The artists do not use their bodies as a contact surface; they create the object itself in a manner to be able to do so.
The works seen here are installations that invite the viewer in different aspects to get into contact or interaction with the object. The object of the exhibition is the artistic presentation of the tendency introduced above. Sometimes playful, at other times thought-provoking, but at all times creating a kind of contact with the visitor.
Setup, as a process of setting, is a permanent activity of ours. We fine-tune and synchronize our devices and time to our environment or situation. Our technological being defines our identity through the devices and our relationships established with them. The installations exhibited force us out from our usual contact with objects and reveal a new way of perception through art.
