Róza El-Hassan: Budapest Underground, 2019.01. – 2019.02.

installation

Documentation of Róza El-Hassan’s exhibition at Kavics, titled Budapest Underground. On display was a newly made installation of ladder-objects. Linears forms, reaching upward toward the window of the basement space of Kavics, never reaching it. Also a 1990 video work was exhibited, which Róza filmed back in Syria and edited with the motif of circle and circular movement in mind. It’s the recurring motif of the video, wich in the context of the exhibition makes a counterpoint to the linearity of the installation, but also a common ground in terms of not achieving an intended goal. Linear ladders rising up, not reaching the intended destination, circular moves returning to the same spot always.
