Towering


2008- | project | photos by Tibor ISKI Kocsis

The central motif of the project is the form of a rocket, one of the metaphors of human will, what is familiar in every culture in the World and has countless forms from space research through sacred and profane architecture to the form system of military equipment. The seemingly similar attitudes though represent radically diverse intentions and stories. The artist's purpose is to collect and cut out these motives from their historical background and process them in different kinds of media, and then reorganize them in a specific collection. In this context the motives can start a new kind of discussion with each other about their collective story.

Amrita Sher-Gil was the pioneer of the indian modern painting. Although she was born in Hungary, only few people know Her work here. On the 100th anniversary of Her birth BORSOS LŐRINC was working in India, so he decided to make a
paraphrase of Amrita's well known painting "Hungarian Village Market". The paraphrase was made beside the original painting for three days in the National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi, with the extraordinary permission of the director of the museum.
