The joint exhibition of Petra Inez Combarro and Dorottya Szonja Koltay captures different aspects of storytelling. While Combarro’s reinterpreted knick-knacks are seen as a value-saving retelling, and the social and material determinacy of the objects is only a faint, secondary motive, Koltay is quite vocal in her criticism of inherited world views that fill the field of vision to the point of blinding us. They both assume that storytellers are magicians, because they create with their words – in the case of aesthetically overstated sculptures and paintings, it is only the intention that decides whether it is a matter of voluntary preservation of tradition or of a reified pattern following under external influence.
