Imre Nagy at Grazer Kunstverein
At the Studio of the Grazer Kunstverein, Imre Nagy (*1975) shows new works
The artist uses materials such as wood, paper, adhesive tape or plexiglass to produce sculptures. Through subtle interventions and combinations, they appear fragile and exemplary. The patterns of their construction sometimes recall permeability and openness of earlier modernistic space experiments. The choice of ephemeral building material relativizes this reference by adding a speculative and temporary attitude.
Nagy's works produce formal as well as content-related relationships between spacial-architectural and spiritual areas of practices. The quality of these relationships is manifested in their instability which is deliberately open for permanent modification and interrogation.
At second sight, some of the works in the Graz presentation put into relationship between contentual and formal aspects of the surrounding space; either with one of the publications displayed in the Studio, or with one part of the furniture of the gallery.
