Andrej Haršány: Walking

This project has been supported using public funds provided by Slovak Arts Council

Author, exhibition title:
Andrej Haršány: Walking
Venue: Jan Koniarek Gallery in Trnava, Synagogue - Center of Contemporary Art, Halenárska 2, Trnava
Curator: Roman Popelár
Opening: September 22, 2016 (Thu) at 18:00
Duration: Sept 22, 2016 (Thu) - Oct 23, 2016 (Sun)


The exhibition Walking is a solo presentation of a young artist – the sculptor Andrej Haršány (*1984, Trnava). The author follows one of his production styles after a one-year pause (the cycle Walking like an Egyptian), which he further interprets in line with motto Reopening of Time (Znovuotvorenie času), borrowed from the exhibition magazine Palais de Tokyo (No. 17, spring 2013, p. 181).

As the name implies, the exhibition shows Haršány "walking" through life, drawing from messages of old cultures, classical art of sculpture of last centuries as well as current culture of globalization. The material, morphology and expression are also adapted to these ideas. As many of his fellow travellers of his generation, Andrej Haršány returns to timeless materials like wood, stone and metal. The trace he leaves in them is more distinct and durable. Moreover, it re-interprets the part of history which is the subject of his interest in a more authentic way. In his case, it is a combination of minimalism with the elements of figurative sculpture. 

The exhibition in synagogue will be composed of several larger objects of such type together with intimate compositions.
