Zsolt Berszan
The Absence

Curator: Diana Dochia

The exhibition "The Absence" by Zsolt Berszán brings to the public the latest small and large drawings made between 2021-2022. Built on the binomial absence/presence, the artist's latest work deconstructs the ephemerality of the human body, its disappearance, being underlined by the barely perceptible remains of successive decompositions. The "bodies in pieces", the fragments, the remains, the human remnants describe an eviscerated, stark, decomposed universe. The truncated, contorted body becomes a kind of archive of the idea of residue, of trace, of a remnant. The artist suggests the body, in certain situations hardly visible in the economy of the drawing, as a macabre game of twists, turns, arcs and torn fragments. His creation becomes an x-ray of the remains of an absent body, the human remains taking birth from the presence/absence relationship, being the evident traces of a past existence.
