EXHIBITION OF PIROSKA MERSITS

Exhibition of Piroska Mersits’s (1926-1988) drawings is available for viewing till 31 March.

„The art of Piroska Mersits gives off a frozen melancholy, as if she were sending out a warning to the viewer, through the walls she herself built for isolation and protection, that there is no exit and no absolution. Nevertheless there is a constant longing for escape that blends into the never-ending grief and loneliness which radiates on an almost metaphysical level from the images. In order to find the source from which such beauty of hopelessness stems, we have to go back to a time in the artist’s life characterized by inner struggle and silence.” Gaál József
