“Imagine the big and the small, the outside and the inside, the up and down the organised, the secret, the invisible and the visible, the acultural and the culture.” - János Vető
The upcoming exhibition presented at aqb Project Space titled Duo-Trio-Fluo is showcasing public art and room graffiti works of János Vető created between 2004 and 2019 in a fluorescent riot. Images of public art and the artist’s private spaces- assembled into pairs based on colour, form and subject-matter. Sixty images as atmospheric imprints from the artist’s life.
“The images are closely interrelated forming pairs, or duos. The three series create a further entity, a trio. The works are digital photographs, that were organised into pairs in 2011, in2015 twenty heat-sensitive prints were made that were later ironed on A/4 fluorescent, zinc-treated sheets of paper and finally coloured with pastel. In 2019 he created prints in twodifferent dimensions from these works, forty altogether. This series is a result of a decade-long creative work. Regarding the oeuvre as a whole it is an essential summary: photography,image manipulation, use of materials and painting combined.” – Noémi Florian Szabó
