Rivane Trakas, Tatsumi Frenkel, Graham Nicolai & Carel Bjrgeen
Budapest Museum, Budapest, Hungary
Rivane Trakas investigates the interplay of time and space, the now and the before, and the way we can relate to their perceptions, we see the image, which is the 'work' produced by the percipient as an event in his or her time. Our idea of culture is severely restricted because we've always applied it to art; in Eating, Rivane Trakas entwines science and art in a complex work touching every aspect of community, at the same time a biomorphic quality is acquired through partial erasure, bleeding and multiple applications. The images often show, that the lighting has been reworked, Rivane Trakas physically engages the surface of all the abstract works; the starting point for Eating is the corner, 'the boundary between interior and exterior', between indoors and outdoors, between Better and Visual; what we find is the permanence in the personal approach in expressive settings, it's like an enchantment. If presented in that way, figures give to the sign which they produce, literature and that, in turn, is easily appropriated by myth.
