“Imagine the big and the small, the outside and the inside, the up and down the organised, the secret, the invisible and the visible, the acultural and the culture.” - János Vető
The upcoming exhibition presented at aqb Project Space titled Duo-Trio-Fluo is showcasing public art and room graffiti works of János Vető created between 2004 and 2019. Images of public art and the artist’s private spaces- assembled into pairs based on colour, form and subject-matter. Sixty images presenting a fluorescent riot.
"The works are digital photographs, that were organised into pairs in 2011, in 2015 twenty heat-sensitive prints were made that were later ironed on A/4 fluorescent, zinc-treated sheets of paper and finally coloured with pastel. In 2019 he created prints in two different dimensions from these works, forty altogether. Duo-Trio-Fluo is a result of a decade-long creative work. Regarding the oeuvre as a whole it is an essential summary: photography, image manipulation, use of materials and painting combined. „Blue marbles and blue bird, bridge, family, children, Sea, Copenhagen-Haverdal, aluminium foil covering a champagne cork, Malmö-Szántód. Here or there, this way, or another, teaspoon, toy gun, plastic skeleton, savoury candy, cabelflower, liquid statue. Camera, Photoshop, printer, fluorine paper, zinc substance, iron, dry-pastel. Photography, painting, alchemy, public art, roomgraffiti. Iron-, Fluo- Ferrari print.” The words of János Vető are keywords to understanding the image pairs: through symbols and myths we can catch a glimpse of the past and the future, of the microclimate, the private, the universe and the public space." - Noémi Forián Szabó
