Ybakatu Espaço de Arte, Curitiba, Brazil


On a street that concentrates a series of modernist architectural experiences built in Curitiba between the 1950s and 1960s, this shack was erected in the backyard of a house only with materials found in space that would otherwise be discarded or were useless (cabinets, doors glass, ceramic tiles, lamps, plants, etc.) By a crooked way this shelter follows the same principles of the other houses in the street.

Built with wood, cardboard, plastic, styrofoam, fabric, plaster and paint. The room was divided into two parts with access to both sides.






STRIKE (GREVE)
2011
Bolsa Pampulha 2010/2011, Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, Brazil


“I understand the strike as a process that goes beyond a form of claim, is a state of suspension of any activity for an indefinite period, a break. Similarly, visiting an exhibition in a museum may be a disruption of normal activities, a time suspension.”

REFUGEES WELCOME
plexiglass signs, 2016
public spaces, Vaasa, Finland


Roland Farkas’s project ‘Refugees Welcome’ realized at the Platform’s Artist in Residence program deals with the vicissitudes of refugees arriving to Europe. Their welcome differs in each country of the European Union - from barbed wires to arrests, from heartily welcome through indifference to hostility, from refugee camps to integration language courses. The project points out the anomalies of the system, explores the phenomena of migration and the utopian aspects of integration. During the course of the project the artist cut and engraved his drawings in plexiglas plates examining various aspects of the topic described above and migration in general and illegally placed in different parts of the city: buildings, places of entertainment and near rest stops.









CONCURRENCY
linocut print, bill/board, 2014
The Most - Annual Exhibition of Studio of Young Artist’s Association, Budapest, Hungary 


“Since the tradition of the annual exhibition started, it has never occurred that the Studio has not received financial support for it either from the ministry of culture or the Hungarian National Cultural Fund. In the year of 2014 the situation has fundamentally shifted since the current governmental cultural policy decided not to support the existence and the functioning of either the Studio or larger art institutions that exhibit contemporary art.” On my prints placed in public locations, the eyes of the featured personas on Hungarian banknotes are “watching” us.








DRAW YOUR MONEY
2011
 Studio Gallery, Budapest, Hungary


“‘Draw Your Money’ is a project that involves recycling banknotes that have been literally cleansed of the ink markings that give  hem value. A video projection shows the fascinating process by which the artist, using a coctail of ordinary household bleach and other cleaning materials warmed on the stove, loosens the precious ink from paper money. Unlike the counterfeiter, the end goal or the artist is not the creation of fake bank notes, but of drawings, realised in collaboration with volunteers at a workshop held for the opening of the exhibition. In this way the ink and paper of a HUF 20,000 note are recycled as materials for an original artwork, the value of which is greater than that of the denominated note from which it was created.“
From Time Out Budapest, December 2011, Exhibition of theMonth, edited by Maja & Reuben Fowkes







CHANGE
video, 3’38’’, 2010


Loss of value as a consequence of currency exchange is at the core of the project entitled Change. The work consists of movie sequences shot with a hidden camera, showing me in a series of currency exchange operations, Hungarian forint to Serbian dinar, Serbian dinar to Ukrainian hryvnia and so on, during which the purchasing power of the initial amount of money steadily diminishes. The sequence of cash exchange operations is then moved to Argentina where the value of the local currency, pegged to the US  dollar, had not long before decreased to a fraction within no time. The half-dollar coin received in the last transaction of the project was given away as alms. 






ARTIST HAS THE RIGHT TO JUST LAY ALL DAY AND WATCH THE SKY
performance, AKT 3., 2002
Brno, Czech Republic


“Roland Farkas, however seems to be giving up the battle with the immature sensitivity of the society full of prejudice towards the lonesome figure of the artist. Fulfilling the preconceptions of the general public, the performer, was in a “white trash” way of conduct relaxing on his camp-bed in the middle of the main square in Brno, the place notoriously known for its vegetable and fruit market. Next to the performer was a sign saying: “An Artist Has the Right to Just Lay around All Day Gazing at the Sky”. The content of the sentence gave rise to several discussions and irritating comments from the offended passerby. Many of them appalled the scandalous behavior of an ‘arrogant’ and ‘lazy’ artist, who was supposed to be provoking the respectable and honest people in the middle of the Saturday rush hour. The revolutionary potential of the situation reached its climax at the moment the police arrived. The police were called to investigate if the artist really has the right to just lay all day around and gazing at the sky. The conflict inspired a group of strangers, who seeing the scene, decided to make a statement as well and laid down, next to the artist. They claimed they were protesting against the conformity of the system.”
