„I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak.” André Breton
Hungarian contemporary artist Júlia Végh’s works depict the dynamism of remembrance and the continuous reinterpretation of everyday situations. Emphasis is placed on coincidence, which composes seemingly distant elements into one given space and time. Through this, Végh’s paintings are filled with reminiscences of the past and present, reality and the imaginary, and through these gestures the images simultaneously become dreamlike and personal.
The dynamic memory selects freely – composing a new, bold fictional narrative world, similarly to the world of surrealism. Beyond the free association that can be achieved through brush strokes and photomontage a continuous source of inspiration is the selection process and the matching of motifs and material – reflecting Central European situations with a studiously personal and ironic manner. Further, the dynamic memory, while confronting and composing the real/unreal, the experience/non-experience, has a significant role in the creation of Végh’s works.
