JOSEPH Tasnádi: Puzzlements

Curator: Dr. Szabolcs Süli-Zakar
Sofia Arsenal – Museum of Contemporary Art
‘What art is can neither be grasped nor determined—one can only feel it.’ Joseph Tasnádi
Joseph Tasnádi’s exhibition is a review of his post-2010 oeuvre, consisting of installations, interventions, and digital experiments, along with some earlier drawings. His uniquely resonant lyrical installations, as well as the intellectual and sensitively poeticised objects, enter a dialogue with each other and start weaving an associative network of additional meanings.
A version of the exhibition took place in 2022 at the MODEM Center for Modern and Contemporary Art, Debrecen, Hungary.
Tasnádi’s creative career incorporates an array of artistic disciplines and genres, yet his writings, drawings, digital experiments, installations, and interventions form an extraordinarily coherent and organic whole. They illustrate poetic and artistic aspects of a profound experience. Tasnádi seeks his inspiration, not inside but outside, art. He finds things. Things that spontaneously connect themselves with metacontents, such as hope, memory, death, the impossibility of communication, paradox, place, time, presence, or of their lack.
At the same time, he examines the relationships between technology and art. In recent years, his work has focused on the bonds between man and machine, the relationship of technology, metaphoric perspective, and poetic thinking.
He thematises important questions with hybrid contemporary artistic methods in which (scientific) research, (artistic) elaboration/reflection and the demand for poetic synthesis are deeply inter-connected.
