Skewerdriver: Synthetic myths // MOME Architecture Institute BA3 I Exhibition opening

In autumn 2021, fourteen third year MOME architecture students created fourteen different skewerdrivers at the Experimental Workshop class. Based on stories, writings, research or their imagination, they came up with full background stories for the fictitious ‘skewerdriver’, including its history, the location, era and society where it was used, and the rituals, roles, lifestyles and needs surrounding its invention.

The outcome was fourteen made-up items that might as well exist in reality, with made-up stories and histories that might as well be true. The items created and the myths around them carry various interpretations of reality and the past. 14 search results for the ‘skewerdriver’, and none of them are truer or falser than the next, all of them combine true and made-up elements that blend together indistinguishably in this exhibition. 

Exhibitors: Enikő Balogh, Elvira Monti, Borbála Véghelyi, Oszkár Szelevényi, Dóra Veres, Anna Soóki-Tóth, Anita Halmos, Dorottya Füleky, Dorottya Lajcsik, Lili Gárdos, Lilla Czigány, Kristóf Lipótzy, Gábor Wallner, Zsuzsi Werk  

The exhibition is open to the public until 7 June 2022.
