Though at first glance they seem like random junk stacked next to each other, in reality, the compositions of lost and found objects are well-thought, revealing us fascinating stories. The photos of Miklós Vörös are exhibited at the Faur Zsófi Gallery until 28th of February.
A cracked safety helmet, half a pair of gloves, a measuring tape, a radio cassette that has seen better days, naked woman cards, shot bottles and cigarette boxes. All on top of an ink-stained corrugated cardboard. The title of the work: Industrial Accident. From this picture – and pretty much from every picture of the series – a marvelous power radiates. We can almost see the owner of the helmet in front of us, we can see as he is drinking up the day-starter, concentrated happiness, and indolently lights a cigarette. We see him work on the scaffolding, stumble, then fall into the deep, and we hear the crash muting the request show on the radio.
13 still life Miklós Vörös tells us 13 different stories. To be more exact, they provide guidelines and handholds to our imagination, in form of lonely and forsaken objects, we have to implement the stories for ourselves.

Own-goal, The last text message, Office, Date. The pictures are just as intriguing as the birth circumstances of the art project: „The core of the concept was given by my continuous encounters with quaint, abandoned or exposed objects close to my living environment. As a first step, I brought one of these objects home, I was inspecting it, looking at it while conceiving a story around it. Later, I selected these found objects with the thought in mind, to somehow continue the alleged plot. When a group of objects has been piled up, enough for a complete story, I composed and eternalized them.”- recollects the artist.
