Third Party is a collaboration of two artists (Máté Kovács & Ádám Takács) based, among other things, on common points of reference and the (re) use of readymade forms. By positioning and assembling images and objects, ephemeral constellations and anthropomorphic hybrids are created in space. As actors who create their network of abstract relations and communications that operate the installation from within. A wimmelbild of lifeless things and theatre of non-motion. Dramatic and romantic, playful and airy, sanguine and choleric, melancholic and phlegmatic.
All of these things seem to point to the direction of something or someone hidden, undefined, fluid (even liquid): the third party.
