László Győrffy: The seven cardinal sins February 12, 2009 - March 14, 2009

The exhibition of László Győrffy (Budapest, 1976), one of the youngest artists in Várfok Gallery, is to open on 12th February in Várfok Gallery’s Várfok Hall.

Győrffy’s latest works – as the series of The seven cardinal sins – represent the concept of „abject art” even more distinctively than before. The complex psychological, philosophical and linguistic ideology can be best described as follows: an abject is something disgusting and repulsive consisting of special elements, mostly bodyparts, that threaten and transgress our sense of purity, order and property. The series of The seven cardinal sins reflects on the gloominess of society and the role of artists through the use of the human body in a quite distressing and pessimistic way. We can see man here endangered by biology, who follows his instinct to the extremities and, having fallen for exorbitance – basically the seven cardinal sins – eventually denies mankind, risking the basis of his own existence.

This time Győrffy used wooden panels for his works, so that they can relate to the medieval ideology of art, however, the christian morality is replaced here by a radical new materialistic philosophy.

The exhibition will be opened by Áron Fenyvesi art-historian.
