The BORSOS LŐRINC formation was established by artists János BORSOS and Lilla LŐRINC in 2008. They were both raised in Székesfehérvár and they are currently living there. Their collaborative works reflect upon political, religious and social phenomena in the language of painting and other media.
The exhibition in the King St. Stephen Museum of Székesfehérvár presents the oeuvre of the artists, starting from kindergarten up to the present day. By giving complete freedom to the curators of the exhibition, ie their own parents, the artists not only put their artworks into an unusual point of view, but also raises questions regarding the parent-child relationship, the artists social role or the curatorial work.
“In the course of our work, we often realize that our desire to satisfy our parents has infiltrated our work. We would like to assure them that they did not make the wrong decision when they allowed us, in our childhood, to engage in what we truly loved, by entering an artistic career. Ever since, they are our most significant sponsors – in both a material and a psychological sense. They support us even when they don’t understand what we are dealing with, and why. Despite this, they feel an increasing motivation in understanding our artworks, and we are able to have conversations about them – touching upon both the art and the judgement of artists. By now they do not shrink back from initiating a discourse about our concepts, or even racking their brains over new ideas. At first we didn’t know how to handle this situation, but now we feel that the time has come to give them free reign over an exhibition, allowing them complete insight into the process of creation.”-Borsos Lőrinc
