Students from MOME’s Photography programme shine at OFF Biennale Bratislava

Date: 2023.11.27
This year’s OFF Biennale Bratislava took place at Kunsthalle in Bratislava between 3 and 17 November. Two photography students, Mátyás Czeglédi and Patrícia Koroknai, represented MOME at the Biennale.

An exhibition by Mátyás Czeglédi and Patrícia Koroknai entitled Me and my conscious self was shown at the Academy section of OFF Biennale Bratislava. Judit Gellér and Gábor Arion Kudász curated the exhibition.

The works of the two students look at the way we see ourselves and the way we present ourselves to the world. The photographs examine the tight space between desire and the possibility of rejecting the physical, social, and political body. Koroknai’s photo series explores depression, which is an intense psychological state and a common mental disorder that affects the lives of millions of people all over the world. Czeglédi’s photo series uncovers the connection between friendship and co-creation, searching for the moments when having fun together and creative work intertwine without people noticing. Their experiments draw attention to how in our technology-driven age, human relationships might be even more important than we originally thought.

Mátyás Czeglédi’s series Me Time qualified for the final of the Biennale, and was awarded second place.
