LIGHT SOUND AND SPACE
A discussion salon with artist and gallerist ANDRAS MENGYAN
and accoustic scientist IAN BUTTERWORTH
Where: LSE George IV pub, 28-30 Portugal Street, London WC2A 2HF
When: Wednesday 21 August 2013, 6.30pm - 9.30pm
Join us at a great new venue - LSE George IV - for this exciting event.
The salon brings together acoustics scientist Ian Butterworth working with MIT in Madrid, and installation artist and gallerist Andras Mengyan from Budapest, to explore the very different applications of light and sound in their work.
Ian will present his research into acousto-optics, a relatively new area of physics which utilises the effect that pressure variations in air have on passing light. Much like the process of a mirage, but far more subtle, the technique allows measurement and visualisation of radiating sound.
Andras will present an overview of his extensive practice in print, painting, sculpture and large scale installations.  This ranges from earlier analytical visual programs to the recent development of 'polyphonic visual space' - where light is used to express the multi-faceted nature of perceived environments - and a proposed ‘sound garden’ project.
We are also pleased that Dr Sheena Calvert is returning as guest chairperson for this event, bringing her wide knowledge of art and critical theory, philosophy and printmaking to the discussion.
And while light and sound are the connection points of this salon, there are - as ever - no fixed outcomes for the evening.  The creative dialogue between speakers and audience is a vital element, so come along and share your thoughts and ideas.

BÁLINT SZOMBATHY
Telephotography of the 1980s
20 February – 16 March 2013
 
Exhibition opening: Wednesday, 20 February 2013 at 19:00h, P74 Gallery
Curated by: Tadej Pogačar
Bálint Szombathy’s exhibition Telephotography of the 1980s is dedicated to the lesser known, yet very important and interesting segments of his creation: his experimentation with the medium of photography. During the “return to painting” era of the 1980s, Bálint Szombathy devoted himself to communication technology. As the graphic editor and designer of the Novi Sad daily newspaper Magyar Szó, he was attracted to a “special” medium of printing, which had yet to be properly exploited in the art world. This was the “facsimile telegraph”, a machine which transmitted a newspaper image from a distant location to an editorial office with the help of telephonic impulses. These old “Mufax” machines, which used a rotating drum covered with brown paper, were replaced in the 1980s with a new generation of machines which reproduced photographs on a soft, white surface. Thus the technology saw both its rise and fall in the 1980s. Since the majority of photographs contained a number of errors and distortions, the device lost its primary informational function and at the same time gained an artistic one.
Consequently in the 1980s Bálint created an exceptional opus of appropriated telephotography. That work contains visual alterations, graphisme, micro structures, repetitive patterns often reminiscent of the techniques of collage, montage, etc., which were impossible to create using traditional means and machines. At the same time every telephotographic work was unique, its repetition impossible. In this way it was fundamentally different from a graphic work or a photograph, both based on methods of multiplication. Of course, we can’t deny a noted measure of irony in the fact that the machine which was designed for operating completely in an information system, exhibits a “sensible” dysfunction.
Bálint Szombathy is a representative of the “new artistic practice” and stands for one of the most significant figures of contemporary visual arts in the region. Since 1969 his art represents an example of a distinct nomadic and hybrid artistic practice. He creates drawings graphics, books, comics, photography, performances, interventions, visual poetry, conceptual art, etc. Szombathy in his actions and stagings most often connects avant-garde activism, neo-avant-garde and post-conceptual art. Through semiotic investigation he represents how the mechanisms of production, exchange and consumption reconstruct meanings and values.
Bálint Szombathy has participated in many major international exhibitions in Europe, Canada and the US, among others on prestigious exhibitions of contemporary arts  (Body and the East, After the Wall, Hungarian Contemporary Art) at the Ludwig Museum of Budapest, the Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana, and Moderna Museet, Stockholm. He is the recipient of numerous awards for artistic creation including being a multiple prizewinner at the Book Fair in Novi Sad and Belgrade. He lives and works between Novi Sad and Budapest.
The programme of the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute is supported by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia and by the Municipality of Ljubljana, Department for Culture.
