Kis Róka Csaba (1981) New Disorder címet viselő önálló kiállításán a közönség a művész legújabb képeivel találkozhat az Art Quarter Budapest kiállítóterében. Kis Róka az elmúlt évek során radikálisan kilépett azok közül az alapvetően ábrázoló, figuratív és narratív festészeti keretek közül, amik művészetét a diplomázása óta meghatározták. Az új festmények szinte teljesen levedlették azt a vizualitást, ami ironikus, vagy még inkább szarkasztikus tükröt tartott az újkori európai figurális festészeti tradíciónak. Az alkotó új képei már a XXI. század ösztönös gesztusfestészetének lehetőségeit kutatják.

Kis Róka Csabának a mostani, AQB-ben rendezett kiállítása lesz az első olyan nagyobb léptékű bemutatkozása, ahol azok a változások mélységében nyomon követhetőek lesznek, amik 2014-es Weltschmerz és 2016-os Terjedő Bomlás c. kiállításain még éppenhogy csak elkezdődtek festményein. Kis Róka mára szinte teljes mértékben átadta vásznait festészeti ösztöneinek, felhagyott a tudatos komponálás szinte minden ismert fajtájávál. Ugyan új művein néhol még „egyensúlyozásra” használ absztrakt geometrikus háttereket, de aztán azokat is zárójelbe, vagy idézőjelbe teszi, ahogyan mutálódó önarcképeit is. Képeinek nincs sem novellisztikus, sem morális narratívája, tanulsága és teljesen felszívódik róluk minden kompozíciós keretszerkezet is. Festményeinek világa bár számottevően megváltozott, cseppet sem lett derűsebb, sőt még húsbamarkolóbb, mint bármikor korábban. Ez annak is köszönhető, hogy az ironikus narratíva látszat-bizonyosságai és a humor morális világítótornyai is eltűnnek a képeiről, és átadták a helyüket az alakok teljes bomlásának és felszámolásának. Kis Róka Csaba minden festészeti bizonyosságot megszüntet új festményein, a New Disorder pedig a művész eddigi legbátrabb és legkíméletlenebb kiállítása.

A kiállítás 2019. november 17 - 2020. január 5-ig látogatható.

Opening speech by Anna Szabó T.

Curator: Áron Fenyvesi

Titled New Disorder, the latest exhibition of paintings by Csaba Kis Róka (1981) at the gallery space of Art Quarter Budapest presents the artist’s newest works. In recent years, Kis Róka has radically relinquished the essentially figurative and narrative painting style that had characterised his art since graduation. His newest paintings are almost completely free of the visual language that had held an ironic, in fact, sarcastic mirror up to the modern European tradition of figurative painting. The artist’s latest paintings are progressive explorations into the possibilities of instinctive gesture painting in the 21 st century.

Csaba Kis Róka’s current exhibition at the AQB will be his first large-scale presentation to give in-depth insight into the transformation of his art that had merely begun at the time of his exhibitions Weltschmerz in 2014 and Expanding Decadence in 2016. By now, Kis Róka has almost completely surrendered his canvases to his painterly instincts, abandoning almost every known type of conscious composition. Although some of his new paintings do feature abstract geometric backgrounds with the purpose of ‘maintaining balance’, even these are parenthesised or put in quotation marks, as are his mutating self-portraits. Kis Róka’s paintings offer neither anecdotal nor moral narrative, nor a lesson, and they are completely devoid of any kind of compositional framing. Although the universe of Kis Róka’s paintings has fundamentally changed, it is not in the least brighter: in fact, it is more perturbing than ever before. This is owing to the fact, among other things, that even the illusory certainties of ironic narrative and the moral lighthouses of humour have abandoned his paintings, giving way to the total decomposition and liquidation of figures. As Csaba Kis Róka eliminates any and all pictorial evidentiality in his new paintings, New Disorder is the artist’s boldest and most relentless exhibition so far.

On view: 17 November, 2019 - 5 January, 2020
