Norbert Tóth: Zenos
2022 March 4-23
Puccs Contemporary Art
[Budapest VIII. Víg st. 22.]
Opening: 2022 March 3, 5-7pm
The most significant idea of the Stoic school of philosophy founded by Zeno of Citium, was the stoic temperance; according to which humans should observe happenings with serenity and total acquiescence.
This idea is the base of the installation at Puccs, expanded with the statement that passive contemplation, absence of acting can also cause the loss of ourselves.
Norbert Tóth visual artist who is living and working in Zalaegerszeg; graduated at Berzsenyi Dániel College; at Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Visual Education Department; and at the University of Pécs, Faculty of History.
By using traditional techniques, he is striving to express conceptual ideas in the works. His choice of subject includes the often humorous but always relevant questions of historical past, the dilemma of time and space – and the locality inside, as well as speculations on personal and social situations of conflict.
