Oratio pro futuris melioribus / Prayer for a Better Future, 2023
As part of the exhibition:
Study of a Standing Gypsy, drawing, 1900
& facsimile drawings by L. Mednyánszky and M. A. Bazovský
The solo exhibition of the visual artist Kristián Németh Oratio pro futuris melioribus / Prayer for a better future naturally follows the intermedial tendencies in his work that freely move from direct institutional criticism to the symbolic level and general themes. In his works, the artist communicates topics related to physicality, intimate and traumatic content, sexual minorities, and power relations in the context of the Catholic Church.
Oratio pro futuris melioribus / Prayer for a better future is a hybrid exhibition project that places a selection of Németh's emblematic works in a functional dialogue with the oeuvre of Miloš Alexander Bazovský (1899 – 1968) and Ladislav Mednyánszky (1852 – 1919) from the collections of the Liptov Gallery of Peter Michal Bohúň. Németh's experiment and selective research connect the past with the present, while purposefully reacting to the current political and social situation accelerated by the terrorist attack on Matúš Horváth and Juraj Vankulič outside Bratislava´s Tepláreň bar.
In Cooperation with Liptov Gallery of Peter Michal Bohúň
