ERIKA DEÁK TEMPORARY MUNICH GALLERY
FRANZ-JOSEPH STRASSE 31, München 80801
The Erika Deák Gallery has been showing progressive Hungarian and international art since its 1998 foundation. The gallery has been organizing groundbraking exhibitions in Hungary and abroad, and participated in countless art fairs. Now, in collaboration with KUNSTKLANG, a german music and art start-up, we found a perfect location in Schwabing, where the gallery will focus on introducing some of the most important contemporary Hungarian and as well Central European artists to the german public.
Our first exhibition is a solo presentation of Attila Szűcs, who is one of the most recognized Hungarian painters of his generation. His beautifully painted canvases allude to the assumed reality of the generally depicted by revealing its representation as a mere diversion for our cognitive system. Szűcs leads the viewer through an initially mundane, subsequently odd and alien territory into the depths of the collective unconscious, guiding the senses gently deeper into a world concealed from the human eye.
Attila Szűcs was born in Miskolc, Hungary in 1967, and currently lives and works in Budapest. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and Europe, including exhibitions at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, and Tylers Museum, Haarlem, Netherlands. His works are also held in permanent collections, such as Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum, Graz, the Hungarian National Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts, Ludwig Museum, Budapest, or the Frissiras Museum, Athens, Greece. He is currently included in the group exhibition entitled The Nude, in Sotheby’s S/2 Gallery.
