For the Hungarian audience it is worth noting the name of Erik Kessels, the Dutch artist, designer and curator. Hosted by the Mai Manó House, the exhibition The Many Lives of Erik Kessels presents the artist’s photographic body of work by way of seventeen projects and an installation comprising many hundreds of photos and occupying entire spaces. The first presentation of three new works by Kessels adds to the importance and special nature of the exhibition at the Mai Manó House. The new works are a video piece and two new photography books: Budapest Beauties, a work specifically relating to the Hungarian capital, and another work compiled in conjunction with the Horus Archives and forming part of the series In almost every picture.

Nita Vera: Spatial Practices

Open to the public:
May 22, 2019 – July 7, 2019.
Tuesday – Sunday 12:00 – 19:00.
Closed on Mondays and public holidays.
Organizers: Judit Flóra Schuller, Imre Kiss

The first exhibition presented at PaperLab is Spatial Practices by Nita Vera who is a Finnish-Chilean visual artist and photographer, currently based in Helsinki. In her artistic practice, Vera explores love and the psychological drama of our everyday life in its many forms. In Spatial Practices she investigated the disconnection people have with each other by staging imaginary scenes in a strictly framed space, visualizing the lines between hiding and showing, real and false, theatre and life. The artist herself perceives the world around her as it were a big construction of a theatre play, a stage where we act as mere players in a momentary stage of our lives.
