It is almost a year to the day of Éva Magyarósi's solo exhibition that LOOK presents Where I Come From, an animated video from her ten-episode Eden story cycle. Through their intimate tone, these "grown up fables" candidly reveal those ordinary and everyday life situations which – at the same time – mark the turning points in our lives, and the familiar feelings that come with them.
LOOK gallery’s spatial features invite the viewer to experience an individual approach to one of Éva Magyarósi's freely flowing, richly emotional stories. Where I Come From, with narration and the music of Mihály Víg, is a bold and sincere confession that renders remarkable layers and colours.
Éva Magyarósi’s Eden story cycle has previously been presented at the Kochi-Muziris Bienniale in India and in Deák Erika Galéria in Budapest. Exclusively during the time of the opening, LOOK will show a selection of six from the complete series (including Where I Come From), the episodes which focus on the complex and unbreakable ties between parent and child. Climbing the stairs you will follow the loosely linked episodes starting with Children’s Dream, followed by The Pine Tree, The Pool, Where I Come From, The Dog Rose Bush to arrive to Winter Gardens on the top.
Opening: 26 January 2018 - 7 p.m.
