Dorottya Bodnár & Melissza Sztojka // We have Life

 

We cannot really call "Van Életünk (We have Life)" as our own project, because it is the fruit of the cooperation and contribution of many people. We feel like we have created something that surpasses and exceeds all our expectations. The landscape, the palóc folkloric motifs and the natural resources of Ipoly inspired us in our work, combined with contemporary graphic design canons. Although we think the best part of all was going out there and see the people and those faces full of wonder and gratitude towards our work. And then we knew, we are actually doing good to these people – this is why this work was actually born there, not on the screens of our computers.

Curator's opinion


"Do we only have assumptions about where we come from, how long we have been populating this planet or who our ancestors were? What situations have we gained the wealth of experience from that continues to define our present to this day? Based on what have we chosen a musical chord or a graphic motif, so that they would come along with us for hundreds and even thousands of years? Is “folk art” a solid conglomerate or an infinite treasury of our fantasy? The artwork of Dorottya Bodnár and Melissa Sztojka uses the symbolism of the Palóc culture and the mysterious messages they inhere with great care, to help reshape the community of a village."
