Gergo presented his work under the title “Who does not love anyone else” (oil on fibreboard) at the end of 2017. As the author himself said, this painting was about family memories. “It was based on a photo of my mother and a love-message on the back of it, to my father. It is many years old with the following text (which I transferred into a messenger text message on the painting): ‘A brunette girl sends this to Károly with lots of love. Who doesn’t love anyone else but you. Katalin.’”

In his work, the artist raises the problems of the present through the prism of personal ones: “My mother’s message has a personal meaning, but with the replacement of the original message, it also reflects the difficulties of the communication on social media. We inherit behaviour-patterns from our parents and then we re-do them. However, we filter these patterns – not only by ourselves but also by new communication methods of the modern world,” Gergo said.

Gergo Bankuti himself was unable to attend the exhibition. However, on his Facebook page, he sincerely invites everyone to see the project in Kyiv.

The exhibition of the young artists “Transmimesis: empathy to ugliness” at Voloshyn Gallery (13 Tereshchenkivska Str., Kyiv) will last until 5 August.
