Description:
The two sentences, "I will always guard my gullibility" and "I will always haul my gullibility with me" continuously run underneath the pictures, while we see the faces of the creator on five pictures: the faces of others that of a man and a blonde woman continuously merge into his smiling or serious features. Closed eyes into open eyes, hair into hair, the curve of a closed mouth melts into that of a smiling mouth, thereby creating a peculiarly transfigured, metaphorical picture sequence. The faces merging with the face of the artist are those of friends, acquaintances, artists of the local scene, and popular idols of our time, such as Hollywood stars. Thus Gábor Gerhes's face intermingles with that of George Harrison, or Ágnes Eperjesi's with that of Nicole Kidman. The work poses questions concerning the relativity of eminence and attitude, human relations and predominance and notoriety. (Based on the writing of Károly Szőcs entitled Önvisszaverődés, Balkon, 2003/08.)
