Bence Barta (b. 1990) focuses on different aspects and impacts of aggression, both individual and social, physical and indirect. His works based on a several kinds of destruction from a radical rip to a slow decay. Stark coloured fragmented pieces, shredded edges representing wounds, theseworks are also a victims of brutality and also becoming aggressors by their intimidating presence.
In the YK series the central object is a small glass piece from Yves Klein’s Jardin d’Eden installation. The metaphor for the deliberate misunderstanding of the “appropriation art” is the result of a typical Eastern European collecting and theft passion play. It is about reverence, the pursuit of the spirit of Yves Klein, and the fetish outpouring of the artwork.
