Péter Kecskés explores the possibilities of the interrelations of poetry and philosophy. Best known for his photographs, at Videospace Budapest Kecskés now presents a series of photos and a video installation, that is one of his early works but has never been exhibited before. In this show, Kecskés reveals the genesis of his work, and offers an insight into the logic of the history of the process of this genesis.

Based on the interrelations of visuality and textuality, Kecskés‘s complex works are a special blend of poetic and theoreical vision. In his works one can sense an immense erudition in philosophy and art theory, which determine the highly complex thinking and ideas of this artist. The central work of this exhibition titled Elgabal/Narkissos is an installation where a video is projected from two sides onto a large piece of translucent canvas hanging in the exhibition space.
