Hungary V. Tryptich / Waiting Room, Székesfehérvár
2010 | oil, acrylic, wooden board | 70x100x5 cm
While the first two paintings are dealing with well-known problematic episodes of the capital and Hungary, the last painting deals with a more local theme. It presents an old bus station waiting room, which stands at the entrance of Székesfehérvár (my hometown) in a preserved heritage area. After the restoration of the so-called Aquarium, it operated for a short period with cultural functions as an exhibition space, after that some powerful investors transformed it to a casino. After years of litigation the City Council fold up the casino, for which I also campaigned with my painting. Though the success is not complete, as the waiting room now functions as a 1euro shop.
