“Tools are there to serve your ideas. I want to use the most perfect tool to express what I want to say, and if it’s dancing I will dance.” (Peter Puklus)
“Forward. Back. Stop. Remix. Focus. Change of perspective. Repeat. Understand. Peter Puklus constantly explores our visual cosmos — he charts and questions the outer galaxy and his inner universe. He playfully moves between the dimensions, in order to fathom the hidden essence and effect of the world more profoundly. He often begins with seemingly insignificant objects and everyday situations, which transcend their proper function through the process of visualization, hence taking on a new meaning. Peter Puklus constantly re-arranges objects, placing them in relationship to one another and adding his own associations. His photographic series are studies, sketchbooks and journeys of realization all at once, which explode formal boundaries and radically expand the photographic space. They follow their very own rhythm and pattern — free of any convention, chronology or logical sequence. Open end.
For the first time, C/O Berlin has brought together Puklus’ series “Handbook to the Stars” and “Epic Love Story of a Warrior” in an exhibition curated by Ann-Christin Bertrand. With around 80 works, the show provides an insight into the multifaceted working method of the Hungarian artist.” (C/O Berlin)
