I Can See You – 22 Portraits
The painter sees something else, pausing a moment and looking behind the masks, the games, making a story out of the moment. This is a much deeper insight than encountering the uninteresting succession of images that flood us daily. And perhaps it teaches us to face and see each other again.
Twenty-two painters were asked to contribute portraits to the outdoor exhibition that they had painted either last year or this year. It does not matter if it is a fictitious face, a self-portrait or the face of someone well known, but they must be from the present. We were curious to know which faces have captured the imagination of our contemporary artists during this period. Twenty-two portraits emerged with hidden and clearly visible gazes.
Standby Projekt’s open-air exhibition at Budapest’s Kodály Kőrönd opens at 6 pm on Wednesday.
