Title: The final cadence of the prelude
If possessing information was synonymous with power in the 20th century, it is now the processing and sorting of information that is required in order to restore power to one’s life. It is through the process of filtering (out) information that Levente Sulyok aims for a playful but critical type of resistance in his work. Imagery and text in commercial contexts, for instance, is meant to dictate as opposed to engage in conversation. Within this economic/ideological context, Sulyok employs various acts of deconstructive translation to silence relentless slogans, re-direct patterns of thought, and produce conversations where there were none before. These acts of resistance contain the potential to reverse consumption into production. Language is compressed and images are turned against themselves. While ultimately specific in meaning, Sulyok's abstractions allow for a viewing experience that is initially open and anchored in intuitive perception.
This exhibition will be up until April 7, 2018. Gallery Hours: M - F, 9 - 5 p.m. and Saturdays 10 - 2 p.m.
