Zsófia Sivák: Our Prices are in Forints (2018 – )
In the recent years several rural taverns had to close its doors permanently or had to transform themselves into something totally different, deprived from their original functions. In my photo series I am going to visit and photograph the pubs which are still in business in Heves county’s settlements under the population of 3000 inhabitants.

Identity and self-identity – Anikó Robitz: Woven Mirror
Woven Mirror is a new series centred on the concept of identity and self-identity, which I began at the end of 2019. For these pictures, I cut photos, printed on canvas, and reflective leatherette into stripes of varying width, interwove them, and mounted them on stretchers. While the vocabulary of forms continues to be geometric, these new works are multi-layered and reach out into the third dimension.
The representation of permanence and change in Gábor Szilasi’s images
His series from the 1970s, which look at non-metropolitan Québec (Charlevoix, Beauce, Lotbiniere, Abitibi, Lac St-Jean), seek out and document, often with anthropological precision, the milieus of individuals.
Images from You Are Here, the album of Tibor Gyenis
Geometry informs the images of the landscape interventions, of the objects Tibor Gyenis placed in natural settings, and similar formal principles applied when he carved or cut out parts of the photographs’ mounts.
The aesthetic of sand and imaginary journeys – Sári Zagyvai: Distant Impressions (2019–2020)
Zagyvai chose local scenes for her work in the second year of her Pécsi József Photographic Scholarship (as she did in the first year), devising dream-like or imaginary journeys.
“Living without relationships is like living without food” – Lilla Szász: Histories of Love (2009-2020)
I am fascinated by relationships. I take photos of friends, relatives, loves, people I know randomly. The goal, my goal has and had been to understand what love is. What ties people together. And after 9 years of photographing I realized that there is no one good answer. The answer is that I still don’t know. And I don’t think I will ever know.
Imre Benkő: China, 1984–2019
“I was lucky as a young photographer to be able to work in various Asian countries. I was taken by the distinctive lifestyles of nations living in different social systems, and I became more and more intrigued by what it was I could visualize with photography.”
Lenke Szilágyi: Post-Soviet 1990–2002
People in Russia, said Lenke Szilágyi in an interview, still consider being photographed as a friendly gesture. The characters in her shots do indeed seem untroubled by the presence of the photographer, and many of them look into the lens with a friendly expression.

Visual artist Mónika Üveges graduated as a painter at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2019. Formerly she attended the Vocational School for Fine and Applied Arts, where she studied photography. Her works explore the passages between painting, sculpture and photography, as she extends the traditional formats of the painting by creating relief-like, physical objects.

In the first instalment of our gallery series, “Artists at Home,” we looked at how people’s relationship to private space, to their homes, changed during the epidemic, with viewpoints offered by four contemporary artists. The second part of the series presents a project each by an Italian and a Swedish artist, who use stills and film produced by Google to highlight changes in how the world is perceived, and how you can take a journey in virtual space.
