Roland Kazi (1987, Kiskunhalas) graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2014 with a degree in media design. He has continued his education in the Doctoral School of the university, reading multimedia arts since 2015.
Kazi’s personal attachment to the rural world, as well as questions of origin and identity are presented in a self-reflexive manner in his kinetic sculpture, entitled My Little Village. The complete installation, created in 2015 at the Steel Sculpture Symposium in Kecskemét, consists of three kinetic sculptures and a video performance. The installation displays two symbols with differing meanings, the shoe and the house, moving and engaging in varying situations, evoking the exciting, yet ambivalent notions of departure, separation and return, the fear of the unknown and the crave for it. It reflects on dilemmas concerning origin, the search for identity, departure and returning home, or even the perpetual circle of life.
