ATTILA CSÖRGŐ

The installations and photographic work of Attila Csörgő (1965) evolve somewhere between scientific tinkering and applied mathematics. Making light of the barriers between science and art, they often provoke dynamic visual experiences.

Untitled (1 tetrahedron + 1 cube + 1 octahedron = 1 dodecahedron)

The exhibited piece, Untitled (1 tetrahedron + 1 cube + 1 octahedron = 1 dodecahedron) (2000), an experimentation platform which resembles a workbench belonging to the series Platonic Love, “demonstrates” the equation mentioned in the title by slowly transforming three of the five “Platonic solids”, the tetrahedron, the cube and the octahedron, also symbolizing the physical elements fire, earth and air, into a dodecahedron, symbol of the cosmos. Attila Csörgő thus succeeds in bringing to life, with the help of a minutely detailed and delicate mechanism, the metamorphosis of timeless geometric shapes in the style of fragile puppets.
