Although Rita Koszorús studied painting, she is not afraid to work with other media such as video, installation, collage and drawing, and her current project entitled Hadal of My Aquarium” includes ceramic objects and spatial collages created from carpet fragments. It seems that the canvas surface is too limiting, and so she liberates herself and steps out of the frame into the exhibition space, where she creates situations and relationships among individual artworks and objects. Each is part of the overall narrative, but carries its own story. Rita has been working with the theme of time for many years and from various angles – the passing of time, the capturing of time and its suspension.
She recently began to look back, exploring memory and nostalgia and what makes childhood a formative period of one’s life and identity. Perhaps we cannot see specific events in a crumpled canvas, ceramics, abstract structures or layers of color, but their combinations and thoughtful construction should evoke something familiar in us, something that we have seen and experienced, even the absurd and surreal, like our everyday reality. Fragments that we might recognize from her older works, are set within new canvases in different contexts. They are like waves in the sea, tides, each one different. Just, as in life, when we return to the good old” things that we know, we need to experience and analyze them again and perhaps through a new perspective we will uncover something, and the possibility to form, shift and create our own identity.
Rita Koszorús gives us a chance to take a peek at her private aquarium” which is however a part of the larger, human whole. At times a bit dark, like hadal, which is the darkest and deepest sea bottom, but also adventurous and full of possibilities for our imagination. She invites us to dive deep not only into our memories and current experience, but to search for the connections to and differences in our lives, and to delve into our own deepest zone, the hadal of our own aquarium.
