I don’t have the time to write about many of the interesting artworks i discover over conversations or even through my visits to galleries, festivals and museums. So i put them in a digital drawer that i often forget to open. Today, however, i’d like to share with you an installation i discovered while discussing with Peter Bencze during the Fotopub festival in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Bencze is the owner of ENA Viewing Space, a gallery on a rooftop in Budapest. He had recently helped artist János Brückner instal a work that was part of the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Ludwig Museum in Budapest. It all started peacefully enough….
