The documents of an uncompleted oeuvre
Memorial exhibition of Zsolt Siklodi (1966–2017)
On the 12th of October 2018 at 7 p.m. will take place the book launch and exhibition in memory of Zsolt Siklodi, former curator of the Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland in the House with Arcades.
At the beginning Zsolt Siklodi created his „visual experiments” with a graphical approach, sometimes using classical means (lithography, drawing, etching) and sometimes using the possibilities of the new technologies (plotter, photocopies, mechanical engraving). At the same time, he also tried new ways in other genres with a lot of playfulness.
Zsolt Siklodi was born in Sovata in 1966, he went to school to Târgu Mureș, then studied at the University of Art and Design Cluj-Napoca. After graduation he was a teacher at „Palló Imre” Art High School, then became artistic director of the Cultural and Art Centre of Lăzarea and president of Kusztos Endre Art Foundation of Sovata.
He was also curator and organizer of the KorkéP International Art Camp and Exhibition of Lăzarea, respectively founded an art review with the same name as well. His artworks could be seen in several individual and group exhibitions at home and abroad. Until his death in 2017 he was curator and member of the jury of the Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland.
„The unfinished oeuvre and the diverse organizing activity makes up a whole and is quite difficult to replace. Although we can systemize, present and work up his life work – we intend to do that with this publication, too – his brilliant personality, this lively and perpetual organizing activity cannot be replaced any more”. – writes István Erőss, consultant of the Biennial and one of the editors of the book
The exhibition will be opened by Kata Ungvári-Zrínyi. The book will be presented by István Erőss and Apor Ferencz S., respectively Kata Ungvári-Zrínyi. The exhibition can be seen until the 2nd of November 2018 in the House with Arcades.
