Szíj Kamilla: The Same (Yet Not)
Sep 28 – Nov 5, 2021
Vintage Galéria
Budapest, Hungary

At her solo show at Vintage Galéria, Kamilla Szíj presents three large-scale silk screen prints and a work consisting of smaller prints, which she has made in the last year.

The works, which are unique despite of the printing technique, were based on pencil drawings in case of the six separate sheets, and on four blocks of wood traditionally used for woodcuts in case of the other three works. The blocks were photographed, resulting that not only the carved lines, but also the organic pattern of the wood material appears on the works.

The digital images were then exposed on silk screens with the use of photo emulsion. By printing the screens repeatedly next to each other according to a system of different variations, finally one monochrome work 4–5 meters wide, and two works 3 meters wide were executed. In case of the smaller sheets, created with the use of two colours, the screens were printed on top of each other according to a system in which the position of the lines printed in red is settled, while the position of the lines printed in black varies.

Kamilla Szíj created the base of the works by putting modules together into a square shape, next she drew a line across them, and then she mixed the pieces and connected the median lines to each other. She repeated this process several times, resulting the branching lines occasionally connecting to each other at the edges of the units when the silk screens are printed next to each other in any arbitrary position.

  • Adraint Khadafhi Bereal: The Black Yearbook
    4 Color Books / Penguin Random House

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

  • Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani: Dastgāh
    Jun 4 – Oct 31, 2024
    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.
