Transpattern: A Solo Exhibition by Miklós Ladányi-Tóth
5th - 12th November 2016
Opening Night: 4th November, 6pm-9pm
Surface Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Hungarian artist Miklós Ladányi-Tóth, Transpattern.
Transpattern is inspired by the current political situation in Hungary, primarily the problem of massive emigration. During the exhibition, visitors will encounter visual elements associated with travel and emigration: boots cast as small ceramic statues, lacy suitcases, maps of Hungary, embroidery that evoke a world left behind. Intriguing, useless, dysfunctional objects, everyday objects transformed and embellished with patterns, become synonyms for contemporary Hungary.
The Opening Night will feature a reading by Rezső Jarmalov from a text specially commissioned for the exhibition by Art Historian Professor Tamás Aknai. There will also be music from the hugely talented Hungarian band, Foreign Accent. Transpattern opens in the Project Space in conjunction with EM16: Pulse in the Main Gallery. As always there will be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Springhead.
Free Entry: All Are Welcome
