Balázs Kicsiny: Migrating interpretation

First location: 18 April, 2011 - 1 June

First location: 18 April 2011 - 1 June

The first location was "marked out" by István Farkas's 1930 masterpiece, The Fool of Syracuse. "The picture shows a lonely figure waving his arm in a signal, establishing a link between the macrocosm above and the microcosm below. The figure can, however, also be interpreted as the personification of a timepiece, his arms forming the hands of a clock. As a chronometrical image, The Fool of Syracuse reminds us of Samuel Beckett's characters who, fleeing from the threat of chronometrical time, take refuge in irrational existence."(3) It is this space-time choreography that the "navigators" of Migrating Interpretation are now trying to join in.
