He lives and works in Hungary, Budapest. He studied at University of West Hungary. That was the place where he fell in love with ceramics. His intention is to create objects that do everyone's heart good especially form porcelain. The functionality is also an important part of his design process and he’s intent on putting some trick, some 'spice' in his objects. He likes to give the people a 'discovery experience' and a 'home feeling’ at the same time with his works. The Porceland exhibition of Balázs shows of his world.

This year, Marianna Nagy Lantos earned the Distance Learning Diploma Course from the Society of Botanical Artists in England with high scores and a special prize. 17 botanical painters masters was teacher from all over the world. We can welcome Hungary's first internationally accredited botanical artist, which opens another door to the Botanical Section of Contemporary Art. The first results can be dated now, bringing the best drawing categories in the London Design Award, and 3 different Illustrations and Art Biennials with his works. He participates in many international works, but he wants to spread the Botanical Art widely in Hungary. In addition to his tasks in climate research, he focuses primarily on the conservation of protected species, the mapping of botanical gardens in Hungary, and the design of new plants. SBA assignments and award-winning works will be on display this year, concluding the student process, which continues in a new, exciting direction towards Contemporary Art.

Amala Gyöngyvér Varga glass artist’s creations are born out of a combination of conventional imaging techniques and digital technology. Her glass objects capture intuitive emotional imprints as well as the impressions and the afterimages of her inner journeys. Opposite mechanisms prevail on the transparent layer construction. The glass images combined with the mirror capture the light and cause a kind of internal vibration. The inner color dynamism of the objects installed in space is vitalized by free-flowing light. The exhibition partly shows a series of her works made during the period of the Kozma Lajos Scholarship for Applied Arts and Crafts, which she won both last year and this year.

Opening: Tuesday, June 15, 2021. In line with the epidemic situation, we are waiting for those interested between 6 pm and 8 pm, in a different way than our traditions, by prior registration.

Archetypes

Biró Zsófia Gizella jewelry designer Archetypes c. his solo exhibition is a continuation of the self-knowledge works of previous years.
This year’s jewelry series was inspired by 12 female archetypes. These characters of ancient origin come from the subconscious and are characteristic of all people. Different characters can become stronger in us at each stage of life. The jewelry on display can be linked to these personality types.
Once again, the designer used a special material: the metal structures used as the raw material for the jewelry were created in individual experiments. The pierced surfaces and interesting textures hide a mysterious shadow for visitors.
We welcome all those interested to the opening, where they can map out the characteristics of themselves and their loved ones!

The designer's work can be viewed at the following link: instagr.am/gizellabirojewellery

This year’s jewelry series was inspired by 12 female archetypes. These characters of ancient origin stem from the subconscious and apply to everybody.
Each life stage may enhance different characteristics. The jewels on display at the exhibition are related to these personality types.
The designer artist used special materials again: the metal structures that provide the basis of the jewels are the results of numerous experiments. Mysterious shadows are hidden within the openwork surfaces and textures.
We are looking forward to meeting all who are interested at the opening event, where we invite you to explore your own as well as your loved ones’ personality traits!

’A Time Once Upon’ is a well-known starting line from the world of fairy tales. And, yes, those two little words deliberately swapped places with each other.
Never- existing mythical, wonderful creatures are brought to life from glass in the works of Peter Lendavai. It's like contemplating the unique treasures of an exotic and far bygone civilization.
Illustrations by Krisztina Horváth are covering the walls like tendrils and ivy, with a fable about the old king and the most honourable little boy straight from South Korea. The essence of this folk tale is built from this unique distant culture with an ancient symbol system that is understood by all.
Let’s find these never existing characters, stories and creatures in the world of ’A Time Once Upon’ from 25 May at the Exhibition of the Studio of Young Designer's Association.

At the end of the year 2020, with the support of the Hungarian Academy of Arts, the applied arts collection of the Studio of Young Applied Artists Association was created! There are currently 105 outstanding works by FISE members in the unique collection. In the future, we will make it visible to the general public both at home and abroad!

Nelli Szabó:
The Pass_age of Time

"When we leave childhood, we slowly get used to the fact that objects are silent. Yet, when a crisis situation develops or there is a personal connection to an object, the object is able to speak, it starts talking to us. But what happens when objects they start telling us dashed stories in strange language.We are always able to listen to the objects?
In Nelli Szabó's works, objects speak to us, but the meanings of speech do not become decodable by a precisely descriptive logical field. Although its objects certainly stand in space, together they are as if they have been highlighted from the events of a dream.
It's crazy, but there's a system in it - that's how Polonius analyzes Hamlet on stage. However, this system is not easy to read, an instant report cannot be compiled from the world of exhibits that can be consumed immediately when diluted with hot water.
Nelli Szabó's exhibition consists of object quotations placed in space.
Window arch and table fragment, digital frame image stretched out like an accordion - objects collide in space at the exhibition. All this is no longer surrealism, there is no umbrella and operating table here. Nelli Szabó speaks with humor about the use of objects and sheds light on the cultural dysfunctions with the commonplaces of object functionality.
In the exhibition we can see material absurdities taken in beautiful, beaten formal poems. Wood, stone, metal, salt - here are the materials of the exhibition. And what is the menu? Hamlet omelette in Kálmán Imre street. Danish design in the orchestration of an operetta - Nelli Szabó's exhibition not only for connoisseurs. "

According to presentationism, the only real things are existing in the present. Everything what was in the past or what will be in the future is non-existing. I cannot change the past, I can change the present partially and I have a minimal impact to the future. My present is a very narrow window frame or rather a blind window, on which some memories and desires are arranged into a new shape from time to time. The past and the present are a by-product of the human time perception, that helps our orientation. To carry a form from the past into the present equals with the act of remembrance. A fragment of the past that is meant to remind us of the past in the present, so we can say that it’s a romantic endeavour. The old objects function as signs in the present. Signs of the passage of time, they are reminding us that the present soon will become the past and, if we are lucky, our present desires will become our future self.

“Möbius Studies”
Repetitive structures come together into a common framework, orderliness in the endless number of variations. Individually weak, flexible surfaces become strong as the consequence of form creation. I’m studying and modelling the functioning of this static principle therefore I chose a formal element that always behaves differently with the variations of size and texture. In addition to static aspects, I am interested in light effects appearing on different materials, e.g. light-shadow effects on nets, on transparent or reflective surfaces. I’m working on making these studies applicable for interior lighting from lamps to light installations.

Gavalda könyvajánló

We have to live in lock-down again, most of us have to stay at home to be safe...
The Assotiation of FISE had to close the gallery either again.

So the member of the management started a small series about good and lovely memories, experiences to help the community stay together.

Daniella recommends her favourite books from Anna Gavalda, Marti tells her cool trip in High-Tatras, and Fazi sends a really good mucis to everyone.
