After the Venice International Art Fair 2020 x BORDERS 2020 Festival / FUTURE LANDSCAPES exhibition finally Close Distance, a co-work by Mákó-sisters - sound designer Rozi Mákó and media artist Bori Mákó – is on view in a physical space in Budapest as well! The audiovisual composition was created during the period of voluntary home isolation, virtually bridging the physical distance and reflecting on each other's work. It is a melodized digital painting and a painted electronic music. Encounter of converging endpoints and planes, soundtracks and brushstrokes, in the air.
