Lőrinc Borsos: Together Forever
(Tips for a soaring marriage in 45 minutes)
Quasi couples therapy by the Borsos Lőrinc married-artist-couple.
“Would you like to live in a happy relationship? Would you like to know how to keep the spark alive? Would you like to experience unity on an artistic level? If you feel touched by the above mentioned, you should come! We’ll provide wish candles and loads of positive energy!”

LŐRINC BORSOS Lilla Lőrinc (1980) and János Borsos (1979) work together since 2008 as Lőrinc Borsos. The name covers an entity with its own creative consciousness. His/her gender, sexual orientation and intellect are equally characterized by bipolarity. Lőrinc Borsos – not someone to shy away from technological innovation - was initially interested in examining questions of national self-representation, and later in those relating to contemporary social problems. More recently, Borsos has concentrated more and more on the medium of painting itself, and specifically on black paint: the extent to which it can be directed, its relationship to its environment, and its dependence on external influences.

Lindsay Lawson: The Real Smiling Rock
Lawson’s lecture-performance guides through the artist’s years-long chase after a rock, which was listed on eBay for $1,000,000. The high price is due to its singularity: it is a geode boasting a clownish smiley face on its polished face. The lecture-performance evolves a personal story fueled by obsession, where its surprising episodes, the artist’s particular relation to the stone, and her artworks and exhibitions that are connected to this topic are all arranged into a tight fabric.
