In July we had the privilege of having Jacob Kassay post-conceptual artist from New York as a resident in aqb with the help and kind support of Katalin Mechtler. Although it was only a two week long residency, Jacob did a presentation for us and he also developed a new work here, The Centipede:

#Jacobkassay’s practice is concerned with experimental and conceptual method and making. Hovering between painting, sculpture and interactive installation, his work is conceived as a response to space. The arrangement of an exhibition and how his pieces interact with the surrounding architecture – and ultimately their audience – is key to understanding the essence of his work. Kassay’s paintings interrelate and form multiple dialogues: with each other, with the space around them and with the viewer.
Jacob is represented by 303 Gallery
