In our second exhibition in 2016 we are delighted to show the brazilian* artist Daniel Lie. For the exhibition Lie shows an open air installation over the remains of an old cukrászda (a tradicional hungarian store of sweets and cakes) in Budapest.
In Daniel Lie’s practice time is the central pillar of his reflection. Since the oldest and affective memory – bringing family and personal stories – until the time of things in the world; the period of a lifetime, and the duration of the states of the elements.
Through installations and objects, using the things as they are, he bases the work on concepts related to performance art – an art based on time, ephemerality and presence. To highlight these three instances, elements that have the time contained in themselves are set in the space as installations such as plants, rotting fruits and minerals.
In his research, the look is facing tensions between science and religion, ancestry and present, shamanism and everyday life.
*Daniel Lie is half indonesian and half pernambucano and lives in São Paulo.
