Got an invitation to the opening of Russian-Hungarian artist El Kazovsky's exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery up in Castle Hill.
A friend of mine knew the artist well, and she has El Kazovsky's paintings at home. Actually she lent one of them to this exhibition.
"The first article I read about punk - all negative - and the tiny black-and-white photos all hit me with such elemental power, that still today I'd love to put all my punk leather jackets...These pictures fitted all my aesthetic criteria, and I still have them: they were beautiful both as an object and as a self-image, and that can't be said for any other fashion."
Very strong, impressive and extremely interesting & fascinating, and large exhibition of El Kazovsky's (1048-2008) works.
