UNHEIMLICH I Gratidude Project
The distorted image of the present lies hidden between humanity's utopian thinking and the sorrowful longing for the nostalgic past. When the present and the future become uncertain, we seek solace in the past. This is what leads to the development of our distorted relationship with the present, which can be a source of immense tension. Nowadays, we often fail to appreciate the present. Many times, we feel that what we have at the moment is not good enough. I was born in Germany to a Hungarian family. This experience is a constant companion; in Germany, I feel Hungarian, and in Hungary, I feel German. In my series titled "Unheimlich," I depict the grotesque characteristics of our era based on my own feelings. I do this through the photography of various constructed situations. In my masterpiece, I transform these grotesque images, combining my shifted identity and nostalgic feelings tied to my childhood, with my visions for the future.
