FANTASY OF VIRTUE / ALL THINGS AND NOTHING | SOLO | STOCKROOM GALLERY | KYNETON
11 AUGUST - 2 SEPTEMBER 2018
Fantasy of virtue / All things and nothing features intricate works on paper by Victorian-based artist BECC ORSZÁG. In this ongoing body of work, ORSZÁG explores 'sehnsucht', a German noun which describes an individual’s unfulfilled longing for an idealistic, unattainable alternate experience, combined with the phenomenon of paramnesia (déjà vu); the distortion of memory in which fantasy is confused with reality. ORSZÁG examines these ideas in relation to concepts of sacred space and religious experience, questioning notions of existence, ritual, pilgrimage and idolatry.
