Comedian 1

Balázs Berzsenyi: Comedian 1

(2013, Handshake Europe Sculpture Park)

Living and working in Italy, sculptor, Balázs Berzsenyi is attached to Balatonalmádi by his childhood. It was during the Italian-Hungarian Cultural Year, when he presented his 9-piece comedian series, the title of which was Top Hat then. His comedian figures are destined to symbolize merriment according to the intentions of the artist. Both in a more liberal form and feeling with a brave drive, there are grotesque, totally stylised, moving human characters que up in front of us. The simultaneous presentation of notions and momentary spiritual contents, the resolution of movements and the reintegration of the elements of movements together with the temporal motion appears concurrently and in an experiencing form in his works.
