Krisztina Erdei: Let's Sleep On It

IMG 0953

When you need to make a tough decision, generally you say: let’s sleep on it. Krisztina Erdei’s already familiar universe will now hit the walls via  a rather unusual medium, because Christmas is coming. Some of these photos might seem provocative at first glance, some even insulting for certain people, while others obviously trigger affection or sympathy in the viewer. Asking for patience or delayed reaction, as implied by the title, makes us pensive on one hand, but on the other it also makes us passive. However, there are some cases where dillydallying is not the best strategy. Sleep, for instance, is an activitity which for humans is not easy to carry out while standing.

Mesiac Photografie 2013, Bratislava

Béla Dóka · Krisztina Erdei · Zsolt Fekete · Gábor Arion Kudász

Curator: Gabriella Csizek


The grouping of works by the four artists Béla Dóka· Krisztina Erdei· Zsolt Fekete· Gábor Arion Kudász may seem unusual at first. However, if we immerse ourselves in the worlds enclosed in these images, we discover the connections amongst them through their simplicity and ability to condense meanings. We see personal documents about the reality they experience as filtered through the triad of their emotions, thoughts, and souls — the joyful life of Béla Dóka and his loved ones in nature; Krisztina Erdei’s real world revealing the impossible; Zsolt Fekete’s perspicacious portraits and landscape photos from a neat world; Gábor Arion Kudász’s images of the eerie traces of human presence in the barely existing untouched nature.

Water, a fundamental condition of life, has become one major issue in public life. We are continuously warned about the importance of conscious consumption, or hear debates about the melting arctic ice, the raising of dams. Every day we see images of devastating floods, raging storms, or threatening droughts in the media. No wonder that photography, today’s most popular genre of imaging, also deals with the topic on a daily basis.

The selection, which now is presented on billboards and citylight posters, features a wide array of photographic interpretations by renowned artists, ranging from press images through fine art or nature photography to the documentary style. The exhibit seeks to respond to how Hungarian artists portray and apply the theme of water through their research, reports, and artistic attitudes. We intended to transmit essential questions of sustainable development to the broadest possible masses through the medium of photography.

Emerging throughout the country, the photographs were selected from works taken after 2000 by Hungarian photo-artists but not necessarily in Hungary. The curator of the exhibition is Sári Stenczer.

On the occasion of the Budapest Water Summit, the Hungarian House of Photography, together with INDAFOTÓ site, also announced a photography contest to provide an opportunity for all those camera users who find it important to reflect on water and to capture its peculiar, characteristics and features. All submissions are available via , while the selection of 10 entries will be on view at the Hungarian House of Photography’s Mai Manó Gallery between September 19 and October 13, 2013.

The nation-wide billboard exhibit and the organization of the photo contest were funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Human Resources.
