Zsófia Keresztes puts on display her new, multisculpture installation in the Hungarian Pavilion that she created specifically for the Biennale Arte 2022. Her exhibition deals with the stages in one's search for identity. Its concept reaches back to Schopenhauer's porcupine dilemma, but moving on from this, it takes as its associative starting point an episode from Antal Szerb's 1937 novel Journey by Moonlight, used by the artist as a poetic analogy. The exhibition, in four larger units, explores both the ambivalent relationship between past/present and future, and the stages by which people map out their own identity. Liberated in each other's reflection from the burdens of common and individual experiences, the mutually referenced body fragments - separate yet existing as one community - attempt to achieve their final form.
