Photo Exhibition – Imagined Reflexions

Grown Angel

Imagined Reflexions and magical realities of Istvan Kadar, artist of three homelands, allows us entry into the world of an extraordinary planet. The photos are more than mere two-dimensional records of light-and-shadow, peculiar colours, and textures perceived during his real and imaginary travels. Captured in a "natural environment", yet exude an almost extraterrestrial feel. Dream and reality are unified in the artist's magical realist pictures. Perhaps this is beacause the thread of Istvan's life intertwines continents and also is embodied in tiny virtual worlds. The exhibition opens on the 16th of January at 6 pm at the Nemzeti Táncszínház. Music by DJ Sanyi (Radio Tilos).
