hu endeavours to pinpoint what gets lost and what is gained through the translation of the transitions that these emerging artists have experienced in both in their domestic lives and careers since moving to the UK. hu questions if their approaches to making work and the language in which they make it have assimilated since residing in the UK and asks if indeed it needed to?
The exhibition, initially opened in Dundee at GENERATORprojects, showing Márton Nemes, Petra Szemán, Zsófia Jakab, Réka N. Barcza, Zsófia Schwéger, Sára Várady and András Nagy-Sándor. The following exhibition took place in the Abject Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne. The show is designed to change in response to each gallery that it inhabits. The exhibition in in the White Conduit Projects is the concluding exhibition of the project, which explores the ways in which they have been affected by their new environment and the vastly different directions they now find themselves going, yet all artists share a common inquisitive determination to allow their experiences to fold into layers of meaning within their individual practices - their migration has become a shared language.
More information on the individual artists and their backgrounds will be provided in the catalogue which will be available at the exhibition alongside an artists’ discussion which will be held before the preview event, this discussion will be broadcast and available to watch live via the Instagram account: @hu_hungarian_traveling_exhibit.
Following the opening, the exhibition continues from 29th February to 6th March.
