    Lego Abstract Relief 2018 | 2018

New Lego Abstract Relief 2018 The Lego based boards, which I have been working on since 2009, are my most constructed series. The basic concept of these pieces was to construct a new image by disassembling and recomposing the surface of the works. I turned to this procedure – referring to Derrida’s contemporary philosophical theory of Deconstruction – during my studies at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, where I attended different courses in various departments and experienced their systematic uniformity. Being equally interested in photography, painting, sculpture and media art, I looked for a formal solution in which technical possibilities are still unclear so I can explore them and experiment them in different combinations of mediums. The Lego reliefs follow two main, occasionally overlapping ways: construction relates to the tradition of the constructivist image-creation, while deconstruction is based on the pixel as picture building unit of contemporary imaging, which can be disassembled or pieced together, and therefore manipulated as desired.
