A church transformed into an exhibition hall.
Oct 2019
Once, it was a military church, as the name indicates it, and now, an exhibition hall. When I was passing by it, I only noticed a church with a door ajar, that always invite me to step in and have a look. However, first, I read the signs that informed me that there is a photo exhibition. Let see, I thought, it can be exciting. Inside, a lovely lady sold me the ticket ( € 2.-for a senior) and told me a few words about the place. For me, the vast empty area, only with the photos hanging on the wall and two groups of chairs standing in the middle, was a bit disturbing. For other kinds of exhibitions, it is probably a great location, but I think the photos need some smaller, more intimate disposition and definitely a different and better illumination. It was obviously a competition, but since the text was in Slovakian, I can only rely on my guesses. In between the pictures, the remains of the frescoes are visible. Unfortunately to take photos of the photos was a nearly impossible task because of the reflections. Forgíeve me for the wicked pictures. I tried my best, but despite that, on almost every item is the reflection of the windows or me as well.
In the Dudor István hall on the gallery, if you're ready to climb a spiral staircase, is an exciting exhibition of Varga Tibor. The title is Archaic photographic ramble, which means historical image capture techniques, alternative photographic recipes. Looking at these photos made by using the technic of Argentotípia, Oil print, Cianotípia, Platinotípia, Wet collódium procedúre, Antrakotípia, and Polaroid, I suddenly realized, how much did we lose with the digital photography and how lucky I am to be able to adore these fascinating, impressive pictures that you can't see too often nowadays.
Finally, a little info. There is a very clean, free toilette.
