On view until: 14 September 2014 from Tuesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

ANI MOLNÁR GALLERY, 1088 Budapest, 22 Bródy Sándor street

The Ani Molnár Gallery is pleased to present a solo show by Szilárd Cseke and the book launch of his newly released album.

Szilárd Cseke was inspired by Naoimh Looney’s public art work that reads 'I have great desire, My desire is great' and expresses well the hopes and beliefs that migrants, many of whom are Hungarians, have when arriving at Brighton. The artworks of the exhibition demonstrate processes linked to migration with special regard to the migrants’ hopes and wishes, the promise of a better life in the West, and the chances of their dreams coming true.

This exhibition differs from the previous ones as it includes mobile objects as well as paintings, while they were subjects of separate shows before. The involvement of paintings in mobile structures and their display on the wall blur the boundaries between the two artistic attitudes and put more emphasis on the common aura and the comprehensibility of the artworks.

Szilárd Cseke has recently received the prestigious Munkácsy Prize as an acknowledgement of his work. Having finished his master studies, he graduated from the University of Pécs as a painter. His works have been exhibited at many solo and group exhibitions and many of them can be found in significant public collections and in private collections in Hungary as well as abroad. He regularly exhibits at prestigious international art fairs.
