Exhibition: Ben G. Fodor, »Carmine«
Ben G. Fodor’s projects focus in part on artistic means of examining utopias and dystopias. In “Carmine,” his investigations into new “utopian” horizons result in the creation of photographs of immaterial light architectures printed on glass. They are made by “painting” with crimson light, sometimes using primed canvases as projection surfaces. The traces of moving laser light drawings are then captured on camera. Fodor makes clever use of this technique to create images out of lines and surfaces which conjure up a space of unknown dimension. Curated by Marcello Farabegoli, the exhibition “Carmine” also showcases a lyrical light installation that was first exhibited in the Budapest Ludwig Museum in 2016.
