The current selection of the works of Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó disrupt the monolith truth definition which is traditionally associated with experience and acquainted knowledge. Meanwhile the enigmatic compositions of the exhibition give examples for the activities such as reconstruction and attribution of meaning, which activities are not useless but they cannot produce certain success.

The method that is inquisitive about the relation between knowledge and ignorance are not a new phenomenon in the works of Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó. The one and a half year earlier installed A grey life (Recollection, OFF-Biennale Budapest) and its private history oriented research project was focusing on the overlapping knowledge-possibilities that are contoured by the manifold readings and truths. More precisely this research highlighted the “real” history which cannot be reconstructed, and which is not blurred by the lack of information but by the divergence of the accessible information.

The exhibited works are not based on such explicitly personal fundament as the previous examples. These new works are related with more cold and universal experiences. As immediate antecedent can be named the In between grids exhibition (Plusmínusnula Gallery, Žilina, Slovakia), that showed his interest on the grid motive which plays a significant role in the experience and the systematization of knowledge.

Semi-understandable coding systems, seemingly fitting fragments and intentionally disarranged and so uncertain representations are in the focus of the exhibited works. Parallel to the epistemological questions the works constantly make us to face with undeniable materiality of the objects and compilations – he also deals with the problems of transparency and construction on the level of material.

Áron Kútvölgyi-Szabó simultaneously participate at the Interferences group exhibiton of the Trafó Gallery. The exhibited installation is the outcome of the same research but with different accents than the works of the Ignorances.
