Against the Apparatus

Main Article Content

Zsolt Gyenes


Permanently emerging new techniques present a growing challenge and an increasing state
of excitement. The experimenting artist works against the apparatus; he or she is looking
for possibilities to make the program fail. Their aim in doing so is to highlight the significant
features; to ask the fundamental questions. There is no such thing as bad, abandoned raw
material. The “aesthetics of failure” and/or effect of destroying may become yet more
accentuated nowadays. The error is a magical/transcendent strength. The error, the chance
work like blood transfusion – they are thrilling. The chance is a coherent mass the components
of which are unknown. In this way it appears to us as failure.
