Just A Perfect Day is a showcase of the most recent artworks by Attila Bagi & Mónika Kárándi.

The multiple layers of their relationship from the studio life to being a couple at the same time is an inspiring combination in their daily practise.

Stepping in to the space, you can meet Bagi’s diary like drawing series of Rozi, their energetic dog. In the next room, there are two tiny watercolors by Kárándi, titled Jákotpuszta, which is reffering an AIR
program, they run.

In the main room, a love letter like, glazed flower bouquet layed in the hay, titled M. Nearby a ceramic vase with a sitting couple carved in, waiting for some water and roses.

„Love,Football,Love” painting on the middle wall is showing the main interests of the male half. Fortunately love is outnumbered.

On the sides, new canvases by Mónika Kárándi are showing lovers in dystopic landscapes, but controversially fulfilled with optimistic vibes.

Before you go, come to the fire and meet another example of a joyful island, called Memories Don’t Exist.

„And then later, when it gets dark
We go home”
