More than 60 years after MoMA’s historic exhibition “The Responsive Eye” questioning how the eye responds to experiences with foundational elements of art such as color, pattern and light in time and space, Danysz gallery shows the new generation


From Tomislav Topic's (Germany, 1985) colorful installations to Sebastien Preschoux's (France, 1974) perfect lines or the subtle play of movement generated by Zsuzsanna Korodi (Hungary, 1984), the artists have in common the will to create a strong experience by bringing the spectator to observe, analyze, and even move around their works. This process is being engendered by obeying to logics of mathematical order and composing with a restricted number of forms. In that way, the works draw our attention on the purity of a line, the energy of the vacuum, the vibrations of a grid, the tension of a point and the force of the contrasts.

It's well known that historically, artists have kept questioning and heightening ways of seeing and interacting with the works. In 1955 took place the resounding exhibition “The Movement” under the impulse of the gallery owner Denise Rene and the artist Victor Vasarely. Deriving from geometric abstraction, Kinetic art is then quickly assigned to a vast set of artistic approaches in which the real or virtual movement occupies a determining place.

Influenced by these research, the artists presented during the exhibition “Abstract Experience” offer us deeply aesthetic works showing a great stringency and radicality. Each of the pieces in this group exhibition leads the viewer to question their place in the space. Often lost, questioning their own reality, the spectator is fascinated by the disconcerting optical effects which change the decor in a dynamic way. These works push the mechanisms of human perception to the maximum of their capacity, yet the questioning process gives way to fascination and a flow of emotions.

Coming from Berlin, Budapest, and Paris, it made sense to bring together these three artists from different horizons. For whether it is between two or three dimensions, these modern descendants of trompe l'oeil, perspective and anamorphosis all master in their own way space and colors, to give the visitor a high level experience.
