IF THE EGO WERE AN ANIMAL, WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE? - Animal Ego Exhibition

The ego of an animal is not like a man's. It is much smaller and whiter, I think. Moizer Zsuzsa has been painting watercolours for a while.

 

First self-portraits on a white base with flesh-colours, then body-images, and so she proceeded downwards and inwards. For the ego oversteps every limit, bodily and spiritual alike. I think it got somewhere as it has finally reappeared on the clear pictures that please the eye as blood-red streams, but it seemed to burst forth only from the ends of limbs. These are sort of instinctive compositions, where a lot of personalities look out of the numberless self-portraits, as if the one who sees, observes, and thinks had a new head and body every single day. One can see a few animal bodies in the ‘Body Series', then the bird motif begins to grow together with Moizer Zsuzsa's body under the title ‘Injuries'. These are already bleeding from several wounds. If we enter the spaces of Liget Gallery, we can take part in a snow-white, transparent experience. What the artist has put on the wall is basically nothing; ethereal human and animal bodies, sometimes delicately grown together, sometimes after a dramatic break with life. Where does the ego live and what does it do with man? As if Moizer Zsuzsa knew the answer, and as if this answer were an immeasurably sad answer.
