VTV Classics (r3): Attila Csrgő: Untitled / Galerija Gregor Podnar, Berlin (2007)

August 23, 2013

The Hungarian artist Attila Csrgő is known for his kinetic works made of motors, magnets and other materials. His work Platonic Love deals with the metamorphosis of platonic bodies, which he demonstrates with a complex machine made of rather simple components. The apparatus transforms a tetrahedron, a cube, and a octahedron into a dodecahedron and back in an endless loop. This video shows the version of this work that was presented in 2007 on the occasion of the opening of Gregor Podnar Gallery’s exhibition space in Berlin.

Attila Csrgő was born in 1965 in Budapest, where he still lives and works. Csrgő has had solo exhibitions at Wiener Secession, Vienna (2011), Kunsthalle Hamburg (2011), and Museum Folkwang, Essen (2008). Csrgő has participated in the Biennale of Sydney (2008), the Istanbul Biennial (2003), the Biennale di Venezia (1999), and Documenta 13 (2012). In 2008, he received the Nam June Paik Award.
