Dénes Farkas’ 2018 solo show When I Close My Eyes at Tartu Art House is followed by the artist’s first solo presentation at Temnikova & Kasela Gallery. Bringing together photographic and poetic modes of expression, Farkas continues the existential and philosophical themes discussed in the previous exhibition.
At Temnikova & Kasela Gallery, the artist shows several installations executed in different mediums. Photographic works, furniture built by Farkas, and sound recordings are abstract representations of things, people and stories that have appeared important to the artist at certain points in his life. Farkas refrains from revealing the actual events that inspired the works. Instead the aim is to lift small details out of context and, by placing them together in one room, allow viewers to re-edit the narrative.
