“…the material is not a simple mediator, but the direct witness of the work of art, which is a
merging element with intellectuality.” (Fülep Lajos)
The idea of Materia Art Association came into the mind of four artists in 2006 (Bartl, Dréher,
Gáll, Serényi). Since then the group is expanding and forming continuously. The members of
the association have created eight exhibitions in the last ten years: Baksai József, Bartl
József†, Birkás István, Dréher János, Gáll Ádám, Haraszty István, Jovánovics György, Kis-
Tóth Ferenc, Kovács László†, M. Novák András, Paizs László†, Serényi H. Zsigmond,
Szikora Tamás†, Tölg-Molnár Zoltán, Záborszky Gábor, furthermore Bátai Sándor, Budaházi
Tibor, Hérics Nándor, Mazalin Natális and Székács Zoltán, who entered the partnership later.
The exhibition held in the halls of Csikász Gallery is a great opportunity for the fourteen
founders of Materia Art Association to introduce themselves in Veszprém, as well.
The exhibitor artists are the following:
Baksai József, Bátai Sándor, Birkás István, Budaházi Tibor, Dréher János, Gáll Ádám,
Haraszty István, Hérics Nándor, Mazalin Natália, M. Novák András, Serényi H. Zsigmond,
Székács Zoltán, Tölg-Molnár Zoltán, Záborszky Gábor.
In the closed but still permeable halls of the gallery there is an opportunity to create new
constellations with the help of the exhibited works of art, paying special attention to the
materials, genre, stylistic and conceptional differences. It refers to the long journeys, which
have been strengthening the autonomy of arts, while they go back to the common origins.
What connects and defines the identity of the founders is the connection of materialism and
spirituality in their art. Their thoughts meet in different materials that they use freely: from the
dwindling ground through the metal, tree, textile, paper, plaster, paint to the light closed into a
If we take a look at the material usage and facture effects of the members of the association,
we can recognize that they follow four basic directions: works applying plastering technique,
works using paint as a thick mass, minimalist and conceptualist works that use the simplest
characteristics of different materials and techniques, and works that apply the used objects
and wastes of the consumer society.
There is another aspect in the naming of these directions – since we talk about contemporary
arts –, it can be an abstract expressionism, a geometrical abstract one, a lyric abstract one, a
gesture painting or it can refer to the works that have a relationship with the previous forms,
or the ones that use kinetic arts…, but it is unnecessary to name these aspects. It is more
important to be the part of the contemplation, what the founders of the Materia Association
live through day after day while they are creating their works.
“We can feel, see, touch, hear, taste and smell everything that the members of the Materia
Association are able to create with the help of the language, behaviour and alchemy of
materials.” (Novotny Tihamér)

Bolygón innen, Földön túl - A kis herceg

Beyond the planet, above the Earth – The Little Prince (09/29/2017 - 03/04/2018)

Laczkó Dezső Múzeum invites you to the guest exhibition called “Beyond the planet, above the Earth – The Little Prince” into Laczkó Dezső Múzeum. A new temporary exhibition in Laczkó Dezső Múzeum More Shorter

Beyond the planet, above the Earth – The Little Prince

Site: Veszprém, Erzsébet sétány 1.
Can be visited: 29.09.2017 – 04.03.2018
The Little Prince exhibition was a cherished dream of Móra Ferenc Múzeum in Szeged
through long years, which came true in 2015. The purchasing of the lithograph prints that the
author himself, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry created meant the formation of the art exhibition.
These are the cultic illustrations that appear in our mind when we think of the Little Prince.
We may meet the main character himself on the prints, but the Rose, the fox, the different
planets and the most exciting stories of the novel appear, as well.
The aim of the museum of Szeged with the formation of the exhibition was to present the
legendary novel primarily for the children in an exciting way and in a more modern form. The
installations of the art exhibition, which can be tried (the volcano, the sunset, the swing, the
thorns of the rose garden, or the journeys of Saint-Exupéry) serves the aim to make children
be the participants of the story from kindergarten to high school. Furthermore, it was the aim
of the creators to make the visuals amazing for adults, as well, so they can live through the
story again that they have read in their childhood.
The introductory part emphasizes the universality of the novel with the great number of
exhibited covers, since The Little Prince was published in 226 languages, and it demonstrates
that the author wrote his book in the enchantment of the numbers. We get to the planet of the
Little Prince with the help of a magic, where we may help in the cleaning of the volcanos.
In the following part we may look at the illustrations of the book, created by Exupéry himself.
We visit 6 planets here, then look at the airplane wrecks arriving at the desert, we may travel
between the planets and get acquainted with the Little Prince’s fox.

The exhibition invites the small ones and the big ones to a real charmed travel, where we may
go into the details of the wonderful and mystic world of the Little Prince for some minutes or
even for hours.
The dreamer of the original concept of the exhibition is Kiss Ágnes, puppet artist and director.
The visuals were designed by Szűcs Eszer Anita, graphic artist.

Kincsek „Szent Gellért sziklája” mellől - Ásatások Bakonybél korai története nyomában

Treasures found next to Saint Gellért’s rock – Excavations in the train of the early ages of Bakonybél (06/24/2017 - 12/30/2017)

The Laczkó Dezső Museum opened a new temporary chamber exhibition of the treasures of archaeological explorations in connection with the millennium year of Saint Mauritius Monastery. More Shorter

The exhibition can be visited from 10.09.2017 every day except Monday, from 10 to 18

During the excavations at Bakonybél Holy well unexpected treasures were found in the autumn of 2016. Besides the reminiscences of the chapel on the top of the cliff from the Árpád ages, an evidence with almost 150 pieces of silver coins was found. The location of the evidence makes the fact unlikely that it was just a lost purse. Someone must have hidden the purse with the amount of money that costs approximately three oxen, and latest coin suggests that it was done after 1230. Since the evidence included only foreign coins (so-called Viennese denarius), we can easily imagine that is was an evidence of a business with a foreign merchant. The chapel on the top of the cliff and a tree suggest the location of the evidence. The chapel itself was built in the 12th century, although, surprisingly it started to be abandoned before the Turkish conquest. Based on the results of the exclamations, it is conceivable that the chapel was the home of the founders of Bakonybél, the holy hermits, Günther and Gellért. The exhibition is going to celebrate the millennium of Bakonybél Benedict Monastery next year, in 2018. The exhibition presents the history of the Holy well and the evidence that was found: the reminiscences of the chapel, the objects of everyday lives and the ornate silver coins, as well.

Szent László emlékezete

In memoriam Saint Ladislaus (05/10/2017 - 12/30/2017)

The art exhibition presents the life and the character of king Saint Ladislaus on the occasion of the 940th anniversary of his crowning and the 825th anniversary of his canonization. More Shorter

King Saint Ladislaus is considered to be a righteous and strict lawmaker and the champion of Hungary (Athleta Patriae), the defender of orphans and weak ones, the rescuer of maidens. The knight king contributed with his laws to the consolidation of the independent feudal state, which stabilized the church and protected the private property. He was the most popular saint in the Carpathian Basin in the Middle Ages. The cult of Saint Ladislaus was the most popular during the reign of the Anjou monarchs and Sigismund of Luxembourg. We can draw this consequence from the contemporary literature and chronicles (Anjou Legendary, 1330, Illuminated Chronicle, 1358, Thuróczi Chronicle, 1489, Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493). The legendarians described the character of the monarch, and they presented the personality of the king with highlighting his nobility and his religious views.

King Saint Ladislaus is the only saint, whose life was presented through frescos between the 13th and 15th centuries.

The audience can visit several exhibited objects from that era, which help visitors go back in time and experience the life and the legends of the knight king.

The audience may visit the miniatures of the king, which were decorated with rich style elements, the gold coins made by Louis the Great. On one of the sides of the coins a picture of Ladislaus can be found, who is keeping a halberd and the globus cruciger in his hand. On the exhibited flag of the nobility the king is offering his country and crown – similarly to King Saint Stephen – to Virgin Maria.

In the chapel visitors can find the famous Saint Ladislaus-herm and other relic objects, as well.

Furthermore, the audience can find other evidences from the era (pendants, hair clips, bracelets, swords, mace, arrowhead, spearhead, stirrup and spur). King Saint Ladislaus has founded the Benedictine abbey named after Saint Egyed in Somogyvár, in 1091. The original elements of the abbey from the 11th century can be visited, as well. These elements present objects of monastic life, such as book buckles and ceramics.

The exhibition can be visited until 30.12.2017, every day except Monday, from 10 to 6 pm.
