more about our artists participated at the show Progresses III. Animation

Welcome to the Collectors' Page of the Progresses III. Animation exhibition at Videospace Gallery! We presented single channel video works by six international artists. Although the genre of animation is used for a variety of purposes, the present exhibition showcases works that reflect a specifically artistic approach.

We would like to introduce some works of the artists represented by Videospace who took part in the exhibition. We are pleased to answer your questions and send you more information.

Most of the videos can be delivered in an all-inclusive service: In order to achieve the optimal effect, they are be presented on state-of-the-art but plain displays, like paintings on a wall. By doing so, we turn moving images into an object, representing a new and inventive method for the presentation of media art. All you have to do is put it on the wall and plug it in!

The videos are sold with a certificate of origin signed by the artist and Videospace Gallery.

Tamás Komoróczky

Tamás Komoróczky is one of the ‘classics‘ in Hungarian media art, and, at the same time, he is still one of the ‘wildest‘ artists. In 2001 a complex installation with videos and mural works (wallpapers) was presented in the Hungarian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Beside videos, he makes digital prints, and recently, neon objects. go togo to more

One of his recent videos is the animation entitled A Nothing Poem. Stills of a portrait photo of the artist are morphed and stretched, simulating the recitation of a poem ‘about nothing‘ he found in the internet. Time after time, the artists' face is distorted into a surrealistic metamorph.

Amusement Parkis far from the documentary genre. In fact, it resembles a video clip, in which there is also a distinct overtone critical of the political and social dimensions of urban structures of present-day India. All this is ‘wrapped‘ in a package of easygoing mood of public entertainment. The animation Political Realism is a visualisation of allegorical situations of the past 100 years: two doors keep opening and closing to allow, again and again, glimpses of the end of political systems, the death of eras.

Eszter Szabó

Although the youngest artist represented by Videospace, Eszter Szabó already enjoys rapidly growing international attention. At present, she is on a three-month residency programme in Paris until June, 2010. Subsequently, she will participate in another residency in Bielefeld / Germany for another three month. A fair number of her videos from series entitled People were sold at FIAC in October 2009 and afterwards to various prestigious collections in Europe and in the US. go togo to more

Her animation videos are based on traditional techniques, although the visual world of the scenes evokes our contemporary digital universe. She observes human desires, everyday sufferings and carefully notices the significant moments. The People are animated water colours with slight movements, like a breath, the wink of an eye or a hand reaching out. Her watercolors and paintings around the subject are also available.
