László Hegedűs 2: God’s Children, 2014, digital print, 50 x 50 cm each

The central image of the exhibition is a lenticular torso of Jesus. (The technique allows the torso to disappear and reappear, depending on the viewpoint.) This main image is surrounded by mysterious, transcendent children’s faces. Formerly, the series, which comprises 40 pictures, has been on view at Műcsarnok, the Hungarian Institute in Paris, the Doge’s Palace in Genova, and St Stephen’s Basilica in Budapest. The images are accompanied by an excerpt from Dezső Kosztolányi’s poem.

I don’t know what happened to me at the moment
but it seemed a pair of wings fluttered above me
and something I had long buried,
my childhood was bending down towards me.
 
(Tamás Kabdebó)
